At least one parish parade is planning to roll in 2021, as the Krewe of Lul has set dates and entry fees for its Feb. 13 parade.
The first of many meeting dates for parade participants is Dec. 9, and parade organizer Debbie Dufresne Vial said she and other parade captains are excited about the opportunity to put on the parade.
“We had a ball on the 40th anniversary and we had discussed continuing to maybe do a ball every other year or at intervals and we had tentatively thought of doing it this year, but all that was scratched,” she said.
Vial said even though the board made the decision to not have any 2021 krewe royalty, they are still looking forward to hosting the event.
“I’m very excited,” Captain Quincee Berthelot said. “I believe that the community is ready to be around family and friends for a joyful time.”
Parade entry fees have been reduced for 2021, and no entries will be accepted after Feb. 1. The parade is set to roll on Feb. 13 at noon.
Captain Wanda Candies said she, as well as her granddaughter Berklie Candies, are very excited about the parade.
“Everyone looks forward to the parade,” Wanda said. “It’s a great family day in the community.”
Captain Charles Oubre agreed.
“I know people look forward to this every year and will give excitement to the community,” he said. “Since we have been told by local government officials there would no restrictions currently, we decided to proceed with caution and will abide by any government mandates that may develop.”
