Parade Planner: Iris, Tucks, Endymion


A pair of daytime parades Uptown give way to Mid-City's time to shine on Saturday night. Iris and Tucks preserve elegance and satire, respectively. Then, Endymion once again tests whether there's any limit to the size of a Carnival parade.

Parades APlenty: 6 Krewes, 1 Will Ferrell Roll on Bacchus Sunday

Rains Shift Carnival Calendar


Updated 2.18.12, 2:30 PM

Once again, rains across the metro area forced the Mardi Gras parade schedule to shift. But this time it was a little more than moving up the start time 30 minutes. This morning's Uptown parades of Iris and Tucks have been moved off the Saturday slate. Iris will now roll at 10 a.m. Sunday, and Tucks will roll at 3 p.m. Monday. Meanwhile, the West Bank's big show, NOMTOC, will now parade Uptown at 9 a.m. Sunday. That leaves the matter of Endymion.
