Easter Parades for Families in the French Quarter
If you love Mardi Gras and St. Patrick's Day parades (and who doesn't), head down to the Vieux Carré on Sunday, April 1, for two Easter Parades the whole family can enjoy. Here's what's up.
Gather in the Quarter at 9:45 a.m. when the Historic French Quarter Easter Parade leaves Antoine’s Restaurant and for 11 a.m. Mass at St. Louis Cathedral. The parade features mule-drawn carriages and lots of stuffed Easter bunnies and goodies for the kids. After Mass, parade participants show off their Easter bonnets with a promenade through Jackson Square. Learn more.
The 35th Annual Chris Owens French Quarter Easter Parade will begin at 1 p.m. on the corner of St. Louis and Royal, continue down Royal to Canal to St. Phillip Street and wrap up at St. Louis and Royal. Grand Duchess Chris Owens will be dressed in an Easter outfit she designed herself. Plus, there will be glittering floats, marching bands, special Easter throws and beads, beads, beads! Learn more.
