The Toreadors, formed in 1947, was a senior marching and maneuvering corps based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Also known as the Laidlaw Toreadors and the Men of Laidlaw, they were sponsored by the Laidlaw American Legion Post 208 and the Minneapolis Brewing Company.

The corps‘ colors were red, white, and black.

Awards included the 1960 American Legion Minnesota State Championship.

In 1962, the group flew to Las Vegas for the American Legion Nationals. To offset the expense of travel, they marched the parade twice, once as themselves, then, after a change of uniforms, under the banner of a post from Louisville, Kentucky, reaping double sponsorship money.
