UPTOWN

Krewe of Carrollton (12:00 PM) The 88th edition of the Krewe that was formed by Oak Street businessmen will take to the streets first this morning. With Kirk Leonard lording over us as king and Ashley Cuccia reigning as the benevolent queen, the Krewe will Celebrate Louisiana down St. Charles Ave.

 

Krewe of King Arthur (2:00 PM) The Knights of the Roundtable meet on St. Charles once again for this most royal march. Randolph Gonzales Jr. and Donna Gonzales reign as king and queen over this krewe's celebration of the Louisiana Bicentennial.

 

FRENCH QUARTER

Krewe of Barkus (2:00 PM) - Next Sunday is Bacchus Sunday, but this day goes to the dogs. This afternoon, the Krewe of Barkus lets the canines in on Carnival action. The much-loved parade's themed is Mission Impossible:Armstrong Bark Reloaded, which seems to set the table for a secret mission that will yield many puppy pics. Get expanded route and parade info here. 

 

WEST BANK

Krewe of Alla (12:00 PM) - Once again, the other side of the Mississippi River proves that it's Mardi Gras there, too. The Krewe of Alla, Carnival's fourth oldest parading group, takes to the streets for an astrological odyssey sure to dazzle the Behrmann Highway faithful.
