The final week of the Carnival season opens with the Ancient Druids, a highly secretive all-male krewe that presents a parade with old-line elegance, and the Krewe of Nyx, an exuberant all-female krewe that has grown exponentially to become the newest superkrewe. The two krewes are known for taking jabs at each other with their floats.
The parades follow the same route, starting on Jefferson and Magazine and turning on Napoleon before rolling on St. Charles Avenue into the CBD. See the route map below.
The National Weather Service gives Wednesday evening a 30 percent chance of showers, with a low around 64 degrees. For updates on the parades, see the city’s parade tracker. For need-to-know parade day information, see here. For parking and transportation information, see here.
