25 floats, nearly 100 total units to roll with Krewe of Lul

The Krewe of Lul parade will roll Saturday at noon.

The Krewe of Lul will roll through the streets of Luling on Saturday at noon with 25 floats and nearly 100 total units. 

Despite earlier concerns that road construction on Paul Maillard would alter this year’s route, the krewe will roll down its traditional path. The parade will begin at the in- tersection of Angus Drive and Paul Maillard, then continue north down Paul Maillard before turning right onto River Road, right on Sugarhouse Road and making another right onto Angus Drive. 

The road construction did cause a relocation of the lineup area, however. 

Saturday’s parade will include 25 floats with 99 total units. 

Krewe of Lul parade organizer Debbie Dufresne Vial said the parade will include dance teams, festival queens, jeeps, slingshots, horses and an antique fire truck. Hahnville High School will be represented by their ROTC, band, dance team and cheerleaders. 

The Luling, Paradis and Killona fire departments will also roll in the parade. Mark and Aleta Harmon will serve as the king and queen of the parade, while the grand marshal is James “Jimmy” Crisham. All of this year’s royalty were original organizers of the parade in 1978.

St. Charles Parish Hospital’s Mr. Peanut Butter will collect jars of peanut butter on the route, while the ARC of St Charles will follow the parade to take bead donations.

“Krewe of Lul attracts parade-goers of all ages,” Lul Captain Beth Landry said. “The kids love to catch beads and dance along with the HHS band while the adults enjoy tailgating with family, friends and neighbors.”
