Due to potentially stormy weather, the Family Gras festival outside Clearview Mall in Metairie will start earlier than originally scheduled on Saturday (Feb. 23), officials said. Here’s the new schedule:
- 12:30-1:30 p.m. - Imagination Movers
- 2-2:45 p.m. - Arrhythmia Band
- 3:15-4:30 p.m. - Righteous Brothers
- 5:00-6:15 p.m. - Michael McDonald
The Krewe of Caesar parade was still expected to roll through Family Gras right after McDonald finishes his set, said Samantha de Castro, Jefferson Parish government administration spokeswoman. Caesar then enters Veterans Memorial Boulevard and proceeds east on the conventional parade route.
