Hoping to catch a coconut? Check out the Zulu parade on Tuesday (Feb. 28)

The Krewe of Zulu will kick off Fat Tuesday festivities bright and early at their parade on Tuesday (Feb. 28) at 8:00 a.m. Uptown. Themed "Stop the Violence," this year's parade will feature 640 riders. 

In addition to the krewe's signature coconuts, throws will include beads, back scratchers, plastic cigars, beaded purses, water bottles, frisbees, cups, tambourines, plush balls and even ladies underwear. A few lucky parade-goers might also take away Zulu Mayor or Barack Obama bobbleheads.
