New Orleans East To Get Its Own Carnival Parade In 2020

Mardi Gras Doubloons

New Orleans East is set to get its own Carnival parade in 2020.

Nefertiti will debut in February as the first krewe to roll in New Orleans East in decades.

The inaugural Krewe of Nefertiti Family Day in the East parade, which rolls February 9th, will have up to 20 floats and feature marching bands and dance groups from New Orleans East.

The theme will celebrate the ancient Egyptian queen and female empowerment.

The parade will be first in New Orleans East since the co-ed krewe Minerva, which rolled in the area for 16 years before calling it quits in 1992.
