Parade Planner: Proteus & Orpheus

Weather, Routes, Details



Skies are mostly clear for Lundi Gras, but parade goers should bring a fleece to the route for Proteus and Orpheus tonight. The cold front is moving in, with temperatures set to rise to the mid 50's this afternoon, before they drop down to the upper 40's. Click through for tonight's route, as well as a detailed weather forecast. 


Tigers' Time: LSU's Big Signing Day


LSU had a monster Signing Day on Wednesday (2.03). Rummel's Kristian Fulton, as well as IMG's Savion Smith and DrakeDavis have been dominating headlines for months, but from top to bottom, the 2016 class is a best. In fact, the Tigers placed in the top three of nearly every ranking of recruiting classes. (Unfortunately, so did Alabama). 


Spring Lineup for Wednesday at the Square Drops

Parade Planner: ’tit Rex, Chewbacchus (Weather, Route, Details)


The Uptown route is packed with five different parades today. Downtown will feature a couple more unorthodox rolls. First, Carnival’s smallest parade, the krewe formerly known as “‘tit Rex” will pull their satirical shoeboxes through the Marigny. Then, the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus will celebrate nerdom in all forms in one of the season's longest parades.

Rex Issues Carnival Invitation


Carnival is a time of revelry--often a hazy time of revelry. However, Mardi Gras season is a party deeply steeped in rich traditions. And, naturally, the king of it all is the King of Mardi Gras, Rex. On the Epiphany, Rex issued his annual invitation, officially declaring the start of the season.

Chewbacchus Awakens: 2016 Route Released


Who is Kylo Ren really? Where is Luke? What's up with the new lightsabers? There are a lot of questions in the sci-fi world these days. However, the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus answered a few of their own this morning. The science fiction (and fantasy) themed carnival organization announced a new route and time today.
