The Krewe of Centaur den was the site of the KTBS morning news broadcast this week as Carnival craziness grabbed the Shreveport-Bossier region. Trudeau talked with host Rick Rowe about Carnival history and led a curvaceous second line.

Costume designer Desmond Ashley and Centaur power woman Suzy Ryan were on hand to explain the new bangled and be-feathered creations being worn on the floats. The cavernous Centaur den, on North Market near downtown Shreveport, will be open this weekend for the loading ritual. The krewe's parade rolls Saturday afternoon at 4 pm.

Last year Shreveport Times photog Robert Ruiz captured the parade.
