Parade Planner: Oshun, Cleopatra

Details, Routes, & Weather for Tonight's Parades



Krewe du Vieux kicked off Carnival in the French Quarter and Marigny last weekend, but the big floats roll down the Avenue tonight. It is the first Friday of Mardi Gras, and the Krewe of Oshun begins at Perrier and Napoleon Avenue, then rolls down St. Charles to Canal Street. The Krewe of Cleopatra follows behind.

Parade Planner: Krewes of Oshun, Cleopatra


Krewe du Vieux kicked off Carnival in the French Quarter and Marigny last weekend, but the big floats roll down the Avenue tonight. It is the first Friday of Mardi Gras, and the Krewe of Oshun begins at Perrier and Napoleon Avenue, then rolls down St. Charles to Canal Street. This year’s theme is “Night Out in the Big Easy” for the parade’s 18th anniversary.

It’s Carnival season, and there are walking and rolling krewes from Uptown to the Vieux Carre! Once you’ve paraded and gathered your beads, catch live music, theater, and more across the Big Easy. Happy Birthday to Chris Severin! The local musician and educator makes 55 today. Now, more Friday night happenings.
