Official start time for the Krewe of Pontchartrain parade is now 9:30 a.m. on Saturday

  • Due to expected poor weather conditions Saturday afternoon/evening, the official start time for the Krewe of Pontchartrain parade is now 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, February 3.
  • The pre-parade party at Tipitina’s Uptown will start at 8:00 a.m. where you will receive your costume and get dressed.
  • We are anticipating the floats arriving to the lineup area between 7:30am-8:00am (no guarantees though).
  • All pre-parade activities are compressed this year so we urge you to get to the formation area on-time as the parade will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m.
  • Please direct all questions to admin@kofp.com.
  • For those of you attending the Galatoire’s/Balcony Party events, the links below provides the information that was posted on the website. It will be a beautiful day today so we expect the crowds on Bourbon Street to be large
