Mardi Gras Parade Routes


'22 Parade Schedule


Pre-Parade Entertainment: Before Friday and Sunday evening parades on Bonnabel Blvd. (between Nero St. and Veterans Blvd.), parade-goers adjacent to the line-up of floats, will be entertained with face-painting, caricatures, balloon art, clowning, and stilt-walking.

Bead-Recycling Program: Don’t know what to do with beads and throws after a parade? Throw them back! A new ordinance allows parade-goers at the end of Metairie Mardi Gras parades to toss unwanted trinkets and beads back into a charitable donation truck. Arc of Greater New Orleans will use these reclaimed carnival throws to create wage-earning jobs for individuals with intellectual disabilities by collecting, sorting, repacking, and selling Mardi Gras throws for future parades.

You will receive updates and alerts regarding parade routes, weather, and more. To receive Family Gras updates, text FAMILYGRAS19 to 888-777. (Standard message rates apply.)
