METAIRIE, La. -- One of Jefferson Parish's oldest Mardi Gras parades announced late Wednesday that it won't be rolling through the streets of Metairie this year.

The captain of the Krewe of Atlas said declining revenue and rising costs forced them to cancel the parade, but they hope to roll again next year.

Atlas, along with the krewes of Thor and Atlantis, have all decided not to ride this year.
