A house on Orleans Avenue, ready to both welcome Endymion revelers and keep them off the grass.
Whether it's the rain or the city's new parade rules
, things on the Orleans Avenue Endymion route are quite a bit slower than in previous years — no flagged-off sections, no tents, no private port-a-potties. And the spray-painted reservation spots have melted into mud.
With sunshine expected tomorrow
, will there be a gold rush for prime Orleans real estate for Krewe of Endymion
's roll on Saturday?
In the meantime, take this week's "C'est What?" poll: "Saving public space on Mardi Gras parade routes — what do you think?"
A mucky neutral ground, where spray-painted space reservations have melted away in the rain. (The portable toilets in the background are marked "CIty of New Orleans" — no private port-a-potties out there this year.)
