The Krewe of Iris, followed by the Krewe of Tucks, are rolling by the parade camera lens on Saturday (March 2) starting at 11 a.m. Parade cam will show each procession from start to finish.
New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan, offensive lineman Jermon Bushrod and receiver Austin Carr will ride as grand marshals in the Tucks parade, the krewe announced Thursday. Former Saints players including Michael Lewis and Robert Meachem also will be featured on a float.

The Krewe of Iris has lots of girly purple and pink throws that are not just cute but useful. Look for a clear umbrella decorated with little pictures of sunglasses, purple reflective aviator sunglasses (sunglasses are the krewe’s signature throw), big butterfly wings, a bag of purple glitter, a purple wine mug and plenty more.
The Krewe of Tucks’ theme this year is "Tucks Gets Sick.'' Look for throws that reflect the theme, such as a bandage, pill-bottle koozies and a stethoscope.
