BATON ROUGE (NBC33) — The Southdowns parade is almost here, and this year you'll notice it's back in its old neighborhood.
Last year, construction on Cloverdale Avenue forced the parade to take a different route than its traditional one.
People living on that street say they're glad to have their neighborhood parade roll past their homes again.
“I think it's going to be really exciting. I think bringing it back down here is going to bring up a lot of memories for people. Maybe they grew up on the street and it's finally coming back. It's going to be really exciting,” said Kelly Munn, who lives along the parade route.
This year's theme is "Francais."
The parade will roll Friday, Feb. 28, at 7:00 p.m.
