Friday parades thrill crowds as Carnival excitement builds

From Uptown to the French Quarter and Metairie to Slidell, revelers came out in chilly but dry weather to witness the spectacle put on by several krewes - and the street show on Bourbon.

Hermes was followed Uptown by d'Etat and Morpheus, with Centurions rolling in Metairie and Selene in Slidell. The entire parade lineup through Fat Tuesday - complete with routes - can be viewed here.

The weather is expected to be mostly dry, although Mardi Gras will be chilly with highs only reaching the mid-50s. Saturday and Sunday highs will be in the middle 70s with some cloud cover. We should stay dry through Sunday evening, but a cold front approaches bringing rain back into the forecast overnight into Lundi Gras. The front will bring rain early in the day with clearing and colder conditions for Mardi Gras.
