Metairie parade won't roll; no parades on Lundi Gras in Jefferson Parish

METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - The Krewe of Pandora has decided not to roll in 2017, according to the Krewe's captain.

The parade was set to parade down the traditional Metairie route on Lundi Gras, Feb. 27, 2017.

Pandora's captain said she requested a one-year hiatus, but would not elaborate further. She did say Pandora does plan to parade in 2018.

Pandora was a newcomer to Mardi Gras in Jefferson Parish with 2016 being their inaugural ride.

Pandora had 250 members this year, the minimum that Jefferson Parish requires. The captain would not say what the membership was this year, only that they need to take a year off.

With Pandora pulling out, that leaves Jefferson Parish with no parades scheduled on Lundi Gras.
