Jefferson gets new parade on Lundi Gras
Lundi Gras in Metairie is poised for a makeover, thanks to a new all-female krewe set to parade before the Krewe of Zeus on the night before Fat Tuesday.
The Times-Picayune reports little information is being shared about the Krewe of Hera.
But Brian Landry, spokesman for the krewe, said it will have "cool elements that Metairie hasn't seen before."
Hera is the first group to join the Jefferson Parish parade lineup since Hurricane Katrina and one of only two female krewes parading in East Jefferson. The other is the Krewe of Isis.
