The Krewe of Argus rolled on the traditional Metairie route on Mardi Gras (Feb. 13). Argus was followed by Elks Jefferson and Jefferson Trucks.
The Argus parade marshal was Mike Hoss. Hoss covered Mardi Gras in Jefferson Parish for many years with WWL. Former Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand was grand marshal. He is also a past king of Argus.
New Argus throws in 2018 included “Gus” the plush peacock, a kite ball and new doubloons for each of the krewe’s maids. The king, queen, captains and krewe all had different doubloons to throw. The Queen Doll is a vinyl doll printed with the image of the krewe’s queen.
