The parade was scheduled to take a detour from Missouri Avenue. However, repairs have been made, no longer warranting a detour.

The parade will turn Mertis Avenue, traveling north. The parade will then turn and go west on Lakeshore Avenue.
Finally, the parade will turn on Missouri Avenue and travel south Louisiana Fair Grounds.
The krewe's grand ball was held on Friday. The parade's band competition will take place at the intersection of Lakeshore Avenue and Alabama Avenue.
