New Orleans East will be getting its very own Carnival parade in 2020.

The new Krewe of Nefertiti will make its debut next year, bringing a Carnival parade back to the area for the first time in nearly three decades.

City Councilwoman Cyndi Nguyen says plans for the parade have been in the works for nearly a year.

The crew parade will begin at 11 a.m. on February 9th and will cover the cost of police, sanitation and other measures usually covered by the city.

The last time a parade rolled through the East was 1992 when the Krewe of Minerva disbanded after 16 years.
