This^, New Orleans has everything in place for parades.

Why was New Orleans the only place that had one of these at night?

Seeing as New Orleans is a city literally built to parade I doubt it. Also having literally the greatest supply of floats in the world already in the city to pick from to create the parade I would say not.

LITERALLY

I think the Cubs and Cavs parades we're probably on the same level. The floats and what not are pretty cool, but the excitement was matched with those parades as well.

Our parade was the best in terms of logistics and actual quality of the parade, by a long shot


But the Cavs and Cubs parades recently were far more insane in terms of party mode and crowd turnout. They had people climbing up the sides of buildings and shite

I ride in Endymion, and that year was the largest crowd I've ever seen for MG... Canal street was insane... Prople were jammed from the street to the buildings.. Even on the N bound side of Canal..

Every other city has shitty parades. I remember my grandparents bringing me to a parade as a kid and I had a tantrum because they didn't throw anything.

not really. I would this the Rod Stewart concert is more amazing in 1994!


I would also like to see how they estimated that cause i doubt Chicago double in size for that parade.

I get that. I'm asking why nowhere else ever does so.

I guess other cities don't ever have night parades for anything, but NO is sort of equipped for it.

Lomardi Gras was a blast.
