Elks Krewe of Jeffersonians is a truck float parade that parades on Mardi Gras Day in Metairie. Each float is the work of a group. The floats compete each year for number ranking. So the best floats go first the next year.
Katrina resulted in a smaller number of truck floats. Normally there would be a little over a hundred floats. This year there only around seventy floats.
