The Krewe of Warriors is happy to be celebrating our 26th year as a Pensacola Mardi Gras Krewe! In 1987 the Warriors started out small with only 12 charter members. Today the Krewe has to have a membership cap of 100 and maintains a waiting list for new members. Their first parade was held on Pensacola Beach and the Krewe threw beads from the back of a pick up truck. Now the Warriors have 3 floats and are constantly attending events and parades and are always on the go.
Every year the Warriors select a different theme and decorate a float and make costumes accordingly. This year they have chosen the theme "Renaissance Warriors".
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.
