SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) -

The Krewe of Dionysus begins Sunday, Jan. 31 at 1 p.m. in Slidell. 

It starts near the intersection of Spartan Dr. and Highway 11. 

The parade travels to Front St., and then makes a right on Gause Blvd. It ends near Kensington Blvd.

Dionysus was founded in 1985 by a group of Northshore businessmen whose intention was to bring the first all-male krewe to the city of Slidell.

The club's royalty is selected at the Coronation Ball where the king and queen are chosen from the krewe's maids and members of the King's Club.
