NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The Knights of Chaos rolls on Thursday, Feb. 4 at 6:15 p.m. in Uptown New Orleans.

The parade starts at the intersection of Magazine St. and Napoleon Ave. It travels on Napoleon Ave. towards St. Charles Ave. It makes a turn onto St. Charles Avenue and heads towards downtown New Orleans.

The krewe makes its way down St. Charles Ave. to Canal St. There, it will turn right and proceed to Camp St. It makes a right and ends on Poydras Ave.

Organized during the summer of 2000, the Knights of Chaos is made up of veterans of other parading and non-parading Carnival krewes.

Chaos rolls on the Thursday before Fat Tuesday, a night that for more than a century had been known as "Momus Thursday." (The Knights of Momus paraded from 1872-1991, when they departed the streets.)

Chaos employs Momus floats and presents a satirical parade in the grand Momus tradition. The Knights of Chaos do not have a queen or court, and no ball is staged.
