Jefferson Parish House Floats
In our area, we don’t let anything rain on our parade! The new Krewe of House Floats will roll with a safe alternative to the traditional Carnival season. Carnival fans can follow an online map to walk, bike and drive by hundreds of house “floats” decorated in neighborhood themes and ready for viewing Feb. 1-16. The Krewe will also channel donations to organizations around the city that support those most affected by the cancellation of parades.
Check out the Krewe's interactive map below! And don't forget to tag us on social if you snap a pic!
