The 2018 Endymion Parade will roll on Saturday February 10th, 2018, (the Saturday before Fat Tuesday).

The Captain and riding celebrities arrive around 3pm to address the crowds and the Endymion Parade begins shortly after around 4:15pm.

Endymion is one of three Super Krewes, and with more than 3,000 riders it is by far the largest parade with the largest crowds in Mardi Gras! Endymion features 37 floats. Many are tandem units with up to nine sections, meaning Endymion rolls on over 80 chassis! The motto of the Krewe is “Throw ’til it Hurts” and we estimate that we toss over 15 million throws along the parade route!

We begin on Orleans Avenue with Samedi Gras which may well be the world’s largest block party! More than 30,000 Mid-City residents gather with food, beverages, friends and family to welcome us and help kick off Mardi Gras’ Main Event!

Endymion is the only parade that rides into and through the Mercedes Benz Superdome where the Endymion Extravaganza is held.

After the gigantic floats, Endymion continues the tradition of providing the finest entertainment during Mardi Gras.

 signature floats

Endymion rolls on the Mid City route and features several signature floats.

Our newest float, Club Endymion is a tribute to our home – the Mercedes Benz Superdome. The ETV float beams live crowd shots on a gigantic 20’ x 9’ LED screen. And Pontchartrain Beach, Then and Now is the largest float in Mardi Gras at over 300 feet long with over 250 riders and nine sections!

River Parish Disposal is a Full-Service Waste Disposal service provider for the Greater New Orleans area. We will provide restroom trailers with attendants and portable toilets for the big extravaganza. We are so proud to be a part of such a great event for Mardi Gras 2018.
