Thank You to Our Hero Sponsors
The Legion of Mars Parade was created in 2013 by a few proud patriots to honor Veterans and Active Duty Military Servicemen and Women, and First Responders, including Police, Firemen, Paramedics. Our parade gives these special people a unique opportunity to enjoy the Freedoms they have dedicated their lives to protecting.
Led by the United States Marine Corps Band, the Best High School Marching Bands and ROTC Units in the region, WWII relic vehicles, and numerous celebrity special guests, PLUS floats honoring each branch of the Armed Forces, our local Hero First Responders, and our special Purple Heart Vet Float…
MARS RIDES! Saturday, February 3rd at NOON on the Uptown Saint Charles Avenue Parade Route!
Each year, by way of donations to the Mars Hero Fund by our generous members and outside sponsors, the Legion of Mars hosts dozens of Veteran Military and First Responders' rides in our parade. One such extraordinary float hosts distinguished Purple Heart Medal Recipients, whose sacrifice we honor in this most unique and special way.
Your donations help fund these Heroes' Rides!
It’s not too late to show your Mardi Gras-titude to a Veteran Serviceman or First Responder!
Thanks to all those who gave back. Your support honored the service of a Hero, and helped them enjoy the freedoms they devote their lives to protecting for all of us!
We will ride again in Mardi Gras 2024! Stay tuned…
