NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The Mystic Krewe of Druids is set to roll Uptown, New Orleans Wednesday, Feb. 7 for 6:30 p.m. 

The parade will start at the intersection of Magazine and Jefferson. It will then head to Napoleon, down St. Charles Avenue around Lee Circle to Canal Street before ending on Poydras and Tchoupitoulas. 

The krewe plans a parade of 18 floats, including some from the original Druids parades of nine decades ago. Throws include lighted wizard hats and wands. 

Following behind is the all-female Mystic Krewe of NYX.

The krewe now boasts a seven-year membership with its 3,348 members. 

The theme will remain a secret until parade time. Throws include their signature hand-decorated purses, lighted fidget spinner and swords. 

Rain is scheduled for the forecast but expected to dry out before start time.
