I Love a Parade!
If you’re like me, and you’re wishing you were in New Orleans for all the good times and carnival festivities, then check out NOLA.com’s parade cams! The website broadcasts live coverage of the parades (with sound!), and last night I got to drink wine, eat guacamole, and watch the Saints parade from the comfort of my own home. Well actually, I would have traded that comfort and braved the cold and congested traffic to be there, but since I couldn’t, it was the next-best thing.
Check out tonight’s Druids parade at 6:30 p.m. (Central). If it’s anything like last night’s parade, there should be lots of revelry, and zany costumes. Last night I saw a Saints Santa Claus, and people were chanting “Who dat?!” for hours!
