A weekend parade on the Northshore will roll an hour earlier than planned due to the possibility of bad weather this weekend.
According to the Slidell Police Department, the Mystic Krewe of Titans will start at 5:30 p.m. Saturday instead of 6:30 p.m. “due to the threat of inclement weather.”
Police say that the change will close streets an hour earlier than expected along the parade route. Drivers should expect Pontchartrain Drive in Slidell to close at 5 p.m.
Showers will start moving back into the New Orleans area on Saturday Evening, so as the parades end we will see some rain. Bring your umbrella! More rain occurs Saturday Night through Sunday as another cold front moves through. Sunday Parades will be soggy as of now, so keep the rain gear with you. It will be a mild day with highs in the upper 60s.
