The Krewe of Endymion revealed a sneak peek of the spectacular floats Carnival revelers will see in the superkrewe’s 2020 Mardi Gras parade.
The superkrewe also announced its parade theme for 2020 –“Historic Dynasties.”
“We have dynasties representing the papal dynasty, Ming dynasty, and we have one in particular this year that’s going to be very popular,” Krewe of Endymion president Dan Kelly said.
Kelly said one of the floats called the “Endymion Dynasty” will feature the likeness of krewe captain Ed Muniz.
More than 3,000 riders will parade through Mid-City when Endymion rolls at 4:15 p.m. on Feb. 22.
“We have 80 floats, so there’s 50 people on each float, and it becomes a camaraderie, like a fraternity,” Kelly said.
Endymion’s 2020 parade route will be altered due to the Hard Rock construction collapse. Also, the massive Endymion Extravaganza will take place in the Morial Convention Center due to improvements happening in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The music lineup for the 2020 Endymion Extravangza includes Tim McGrax, Styx and Train.
