Krewe of Warriors

History:

The Krewe of Warriors is happy to be celebrating our 30th year as a Pensacola Mardi Gras Krewe!  In 1987 the Warriors started out small with only 12 charter members.  Their first parade was held on Pensacola Beach and the Krewe threw beads from the back of a pick up truck. This year we have 89 members and three floats.

About Krewe:

Every year the Warriors select a different theme, decorate a float, and make costumes accordingly.  This year they have chosen to renew their original theme of “Road Warriors” to celebrate their 30 year anniversary.

In addition to the Krewe Court, the Warriors also have a Kidz Court, so members’ children and grandchildren can participate.  The Kidz Court dresses up in costume based on our theme each year.  They also have their own float and during the Grand Mardi Gras parade they get to parade with us and throw beads.  They have a blast!

As much as the Warriors enjoy a good party, we also love to get involved in many different local charities.  We support: Favor House, the American Red Cross, Blaze Sports Pensacola, the Northwest Florida Zoo, Belmont Arts Center.
