Parade-goers will grab for Nyx purses, Muses shoes and other coveted Carnival throws this week.
Ready or not, some of Carnival’s largest super krewes get ready to roll this week. Nearly three dozen parades span across New Orleans and its surrounding areas.
Friday kicks things off with the Krewe of Hermes and the mysterious Krewe d’Etat rolling Uptown while the Original Krewe of Orpheus rolls in Mandeville.
Saturday brings out NOMTOC, one of the only two remaining West Bank parades, while super krewe Endymion rolls in Mid-City.
If you can’t make it to the parade or don’t want to bother with crowds. FOX 8 has exclusive coverage of the Endymion parade and Extravanganza. FOX 8 Morning Edition anchors John Snell and Nancy Parker hosts the broadcast, and FOX 8 Carnival expert Arthur Hardy joins as a special guest. Live coverage starts at 8 p.m. on Saturday.
On Sunday, super krewe Bacchus rolls Uptown, while Jefferson Parish sees two parades rolling in Metairie.
