METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - Jefferson Parish may gain one carnival parade next year as it loses a different one.

According to our partners NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, The Corps de Napoleon that rolls the Sunday before Mardi Gras did not seek a permit to parade in 2019.

Napoleon has paraded for 38 years.

A new krewe called Krewe of Kings did apply to roll.

That krewe wants to parade on the Sunday of Family Gras weekend, which is 10 days before Mardi Gras.
