Lundi Gras Parade Time Updates
The Orpheus parade will start 30 minutes earlier today, following Proteus, the New Orleans Police Department announced today. The 5:30 p.m. start is 30 minutes earlier than normal, and due to expected inclement weather.
Orpheus will make a hard right onto the riverbound side of Canal Street, turn onto Tchoupitoulas and take a left onto Henderson to the disband area.
The police are advising people who are attending the Orpheus ball to make plans to arrive early, since vehicles will be prohibited from crossing Tchoupitoulas from Henderson to Canal Streets while the parade is rolling.
