    What happened to the Oak Street to Hillary route? I waited until around 10 … so did they change or did I just miss it?

      The parade got so Large that 3years ago the Police made us move the route. The Summer route is Oak to Carrollton to Palmer Park. Party at Palmer Park for an hour or so then roll back up Carrollton to Oak street.
      Winter goes through the old route!!

    The Metairiation of the Krewe of OAK. Sad, disappointing and unacceptable. Love the marching groups in big parades like Muses but they’ve pretty much taken over the Midsummer Mardi Gras parade. It’s no longer a neighborhood gem that meanders through the area with a couple of brass bands. It’s more like going to on of the parades in Metry with the French braid brigades and their sound systems. Too bad.
