SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) -

The Centaur Parade will be even more magical this year. Its theme is "Fables, Folklore and Fairy Tales."

Krewe members promise the float lineup will be full of surprises for the thousands expected to line the parade route. Until then, members are just trying to get the floats ready. They're also getting ready for the Centaur's ball, which will be held at the Shreveport Convention Center this year. The ball is open to the public and gives the krewe a chance to introduce its royalty. Guests should expect a good time.

"They should expect a lot of music, dancing, a lot of liveliness, a lot of confetti," Angie Costakis, a krewe member, said. "It's just a high energy environment, a really exciting place to be."

The centaur parade will be held on February 22. You can catch the ball on February 8th and buy tickets for at kreweofcentaur.org.
