Just a year after its founding, and without ever parading in Metairie, the Krewe of Hera has been removed from the Jefferson Parish Carnival parade schedule amid allegations of mismanagement, anger about the cancellation of a parade earlier this year and questions about a fundraising raffle.
The Advocate reports the Jefferson Parish Council removed Hera from its scheduled parade on Lundi Gras 2014 during the council's meeting on Wednesday.
Hera's parade spot will be taken by the new Guardians of Atlantis krewe.
The decision came amid after testimony from former krewe members a float builder painted Hera as disorganized and unable to muster the resources or members needed to stage a parade.
