Posted on Jan 16, 2013 in Drugs, DUI/DWI, Local Issues, Mardi Gras

Carnival season kicks off this Saturday with the most individualistic and the most traditional of all New Orleans parading Krewes, Krewe du Vieux. The parade is known for its wild, scandalous costumes and showcasing some of the best brass and jazz bands in the city. The parade kicked off for the first time in 1987 and has been going strong ever since. Krewe du Vieux begins in the Marigny and winds its way to the the French quarter. The parade starts at 6:30 on the corner of Royal and Port Streets. Make sure to "come early" to grap your spot and Laissez les bons temps rouler!
