Krewe of Orion Parade and Route
The Krewe of Orion’s 14th annual Mardi Gras parade will roll in downtown Baton Rouge on Saturday, February 2, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. The parade theme for 2013 is “Les Festivales Internationale”.
Parade goers will be treated to a line of exciting, colorful traditional lighted and tractor-pulled floats. Following the parade theme, each float will be decorated to depict an area landmark (usually an establishment that has gone out of business) that is fondly remembered, but is no longer with us. On the floats, masked and costumed riders will throw plenty of themed parade medallions, Krewe of Orion signature footballs, cups, plush animals, Orion swords and doubloons, lighted throws, and beads. Marching bands and riding and marching units will be among the great sights and sounds at this wonderful family-oriented parade.
