BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Just a reminder for everyone excited about the start of Mardi Gras weekend – the Southdowns Parade will start rolling tonight at about 7:00 p.m.
The parade starts at Lee High School.
This year, the parade won't be on Cloverdale because the city-parish is doing work on that street.
Stanford Avenue from Hyacinth to Perkins Road will be temporarily closed until 10:00 p.m. so the parade can run. You can also expect closures on Perkins Road between Acadian Thruway and Valley Street.
If you aren't going to the parade, tune in to NBC33 News at 6:30 and 10 for coverage of the Southdowns Parade.
