Joan of Arc Parade

DATE
Tue, Jan 6, 2015
TIME
6:00pm - 7:30pm

Celebrating St. Joan of Arc’s birthday, New Orleans’ French heritage and Twelfth Night, the Krewe de Jeanne d'Arc walking parade is styled as a medieval saint procession and festival, “set” in Joan’s time in 1400s France. It’s a short, family-friendly parade — quirky, whimsical and sometimes spiritual. The public is invited to watch the parade and join us at the end of the parade (7-7:30ish) at Washington Artillery Park for the crowning of the king and our first king cake of the 2015 Carnival season. The krewe will have some king cake to share but parade goers are encouraged to bring their own king cake to share and perhaps some picnic wine or pick up a hot drink from one of the coffee shops next to Washington Artillery Park.
