Our Carnival Heritage: The Krewe of Thor

Formed in 1974 as Jefferson Parish's first male & female krewe, they take their name from the Nordic god of thunder. Thor was the first krewe in 1996 to cease throwing doubloons, though they more than make up for it with the plentiful throws they shower on Metairie residents along the Veterans Memorial route.
