Despite storms raining on their parade, the Krewe of Caesar still rolled down Veterans Memorial Boulevard Saturday night, Feb. 23, 2019 in Metairie during Family Gras weekend.

The 40th parade took to Family Gras' new route starting at Clearview Shopping Center, but was shortened due to poor weather conditions.

The parade's theme this year was ‘Larger Than Life XL.’ The largest carnival Krewe in Jefferson Parish featured 24 floats with 500 members. Julia Marie Oubre reigned as Empress XL and Are Mike Meguerditchian ruled as Emperor.
