Two parades roll tonight Uptown that are shrouded in mystery
Now that the Super Bowl is over, the spotlight is back on Carnival.
Two parades are scheduled to roll tonight Uptown: Druids at 6:30 followed by Nyx at 7.
Mardi Gras Guide publisher Arthur Hardy calls them a "secret doubleheader" because they don't publicly reveal their parade themes or what they're gonna throw.
"I have seen some of the throws, but they've asked to keep them quiet until parade time. So a lot of mystery Wednesday night in downtown and uptown New Orleans for the first big night of the rest of the season," Hardy tells 99.5FM.
Hardy says Druids is known for satire, and "this particular parade, I've seen the floats and they take kind of some potshots in a friendly way at other Mardi Gras organizations."
