Argus rolls in Metairie: See photos of the Mardi Gras parade

The Krewe of Argus kicked off Mardi Gras Day (Feb. 28) in Metairie, sending its royalty and grand marshals along the Veterans Memorial Boulevard parade route and celebrating the end of Carnival season with revelry and family-friendly fun.

The grand marshals for Argus in 2017 included the cast of the Ty, Kelly & Chuck morning radio show and characters from the Smurfs.
