NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Knights of Babylon gets rolling at 5:30 p.m. kicking off a trio of parades and several hours of fun along the Uptown route. Babylon has 21 floats and keeps its theme a secret until parade time.
Then, chaos follows at 6:15 p.m. Chaos throws float-specific cards and cups, plush swords and shields, and light swords.
The all-female Krewe of Muses rolls at 6:30 p.m. with 26 floats, but you will also have to wait until tonight to see their theme. Throws include the coveted, hand-decorated shoes.
