There are three Super Sunday Mardi Gras celebrations that happen each year after St. Joseph's Night on March 19. Mardi Gras Indians from all parts of New Orleans come together for a procession that displays their unity and amazing artistry. At the end of the procession, there is a big festival with music, food, children's activities, and more.
Uptown Super Sunday is the first of these celebrations. It will happen on Sunday, March 19. Above, listen in as Action Jackson sits down with Chief Howard of Creole Wild West, one of the oldest Mardi Gras Indian tribes in the city.
Westbank Super Sunday and Downtown Super Sunday follow on dates soon after.
