The legendary British King and his Men of the Round Table have provided some of the most colorful and romantic tales in all of medieval lore. This former westbank krewe, named after the noble monarch, was organized in 1977 by the youngest captain in the history of Carnival. The first three parades of the Knights were presented in the morning. In 1979, the group became the first westbank men’s organization to parade at night. The Knights of King Arthur moved their parade to Sunday afternoon in New Orleans in 2001.
