The event is traditionally one of just two times onlookers can see Mardi Gras Indians display their meticulously designed suits. Now that Mardi Gras Day has passed, the next possible time to see them is Super Sunday, which is celebrated around St. Joseph's Day and coincidentally falls on the same day in 2017.
Other neighborhoods, too, will host their own Super Sunday events. The West Bank Super Sunday, for example, will be celebrated at West Fest on April 23, according to Tyrone Casby Jr. of the Mohawk Hunters Mardi Gras Indians.
From the corner of Washington Avenue and LaSalle Street, the procession will take the Mardi Gras Indians down Simon Bolivar Avenue to take a left on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard before taking another left at Claiborne Avenue. From there, the Mardi Gras Indians will take another left back onto Washington Avenue to land back at A.L. Davis Park.
Offbeat reports about 30 tribes are scheduled to take part in the event.
The day will begin and end with a festival at A.L. Davis Park. Performers include the Hot 8 Brass Band, Young Pinstripe Brass Band, DJ Jubilee, Big Al Carson and several others.
