Endymion will indeed return to its Mid-City route, and also announced celebrity riders and performers!

Prior to the parade on Saturday, February 2nd, Frito Lay and the Red Baron Pizza Flying Squadron will host the return of a much bigger and better Samedi Gras party on Orleans Avenue! Samedi Gras begins at approximately noon and will feature favorites such as The Chee-Weez, The Topcats, the Bucktown All-Stars and Cowboy Mouth, plus aerobatics in the air, with trailing plumes of smoke as the Red Baron Pizza Flying Squadron marks the beginning of the parade with the command, “Smoke On!” The Red Baron Flying Squadron has been thrilling families with its exciting aerobatic maneuvers for over 25 years!

Kevin Costner is this year’s Grand Marshal, and will ride along with legendary rockers, The Go-Gos and The Doobie Brothers! Kevin Costner and his band, Modern West, The Go-Gos, the Doobie Brothers and Cowboy Mouth will perform at the Extravaganza in the Superdome immediately following the parade.

Rumor has it that there's a guy on the route already. S.S. and B.K. are having people over. -but if you know who S.S. and B.K. are, then you already know that.

I wanted to make it official that everyone's invited over to my house on Saturday. I'll provide snacks, so just bring what you want to drink. Yay!
