Zulu, Endymion change parade route for Mardi Gras due to Hard Rock collapse


(WWL) Endymion and Zulu have both changed their traditional parade routes to avoid the Hard Rock collapse site at the corner of Canal and Rampart Streets.

During a press conference Monday, Endymion President Don Kelly said the krewe was happy the new route will stay in Mid-City.

“We’re able to parade where we want to parade,” Kelly said. “We have a few glitches we have to work through, but I think the entire 3,200 member krewe is very excited we’re able to be in mid-city, where we want to be.”

  • Right on Elk Place
  • Continue onto Loyola Avenue
  • Left on Poydras Street
