3/1, Endymion, 4:15 p.m.
Endymion is more than a parade. It is an event. The largest in Carnival. The one people camp out and mark off turf for. It’s earned points recently for working to upgrade its themes and float designs. Last year, the amazing and record-breaking Pontchartrain Beach float made quite a splash, and this year its ride should be even better. Endymion is also a top parade for bands, throws, celebrities - What more can you say? Only that Endymion continues to live up to its reputation as a must-see.
