More Carnival Parades Move To Avoid Super Bowl
Alla Moves To Saturday; Carrollton, King Arthur Roll Early
NEW ORLEANS — More Carnival krewes are making changes to their plans for Super Bowl Sunday, with parades moving dates and times to avoid rolling during the big game.
WDSU has learned that Alla will move its parade from Sunday, Feb. 7, to Saturday, Feb. 6, and will follow the Choctaw and Adonis parades on the Westbank.
In addition, the Carrollton and King Arthur parades schedule to roll uptown that Sunday will start one hour earlier — beginning at 11 a.m. — to accommodate the Super Bowl.
These are the latest changes caused by football’s biggest game, which is looking more and more like it may include the New Orleans Saints.
Jefferson Parish’s “Family Gras” event, which was scheduled for that entire weekend, has been canceled for this year. The krewe of Rhea canceled its parade because of the game, and Centurions moved its parade to the Friday before Mardi Gras.
