Easter Parades for Families in the French Quarter

If you love Mardi Gras-style parades (and who doesn't), head down to the Vieux Carré on Sunday, March 31, for two Easter Parades the whole family can enjoy. Here's what's up.

Historic French Quarter Easter Parade

Gather in the Quarter at 9:45 a.m. when the Historic French Quarter Easter Parade leaves Antoine's for 11 a.m. Mass at St. Louis Cathedral. The parade features mule-drawn carriages and lots of stuffed Easter bunnies and goodies for the kids. After Mass, parade participants show off their Easter bonnets with a promenade through Jackson Square. Learn more.

French Quarter Easter Parade

The parade will begin at 1 p.m. on the corner of St. Louis and Royal, continue down Royal to Canal to St. Phillip Street and wrap up at St. Louis and Royal. There will be glittering floats, marching bands, special Easter throws and beads, beads, beads! Learn more.
