Making my plans now to get out there. Anything not around City Park would be great.

Any tips would be appreciated. Also, I need parking suggestions, I haven't been to that parade in a long long time.

Well there goes my suggestion
last few times I went we caught it at the Delgado staging area
not too too crowded and able to slip away easy enough

Where are we allowed to park at around Delgado?

Also, is there a spot where can watch Tucks, Iris, and Endymion all in one spot? That would be great.

I think it's $25 or $30. They fill up by about 2:30 (latest).

Is it that much now? I was thinking $20, but I don't really pay attention since we always go there.

You would have to be downtown.

The only place they all 3 pass would be a small stretch of Canal downtown or St Charles in the CBD, but that would be many many hours apart.

We used to go on Canal by the church a couple of blocks downtown of Mandina's. I think it's the Bethany Church? But they would have porto-lets in the parking lot an you could get a wristband with a church donation.

Not sure if they still do that.

Canal as a whole is generally better now than it used to be, but the section closest to Carrollton is also a good choice if you get there early enough. I still would tend to not go to the sections closer to downtown unless you are actually downtown... if that makes sense.

When I 1st moved back to NO I lived 3 houses off of Orleans but that was when Carrollton was all dug up and Endymion was rerouted

When my first child was born we lived about 6 blocks off Orleans and I was able to walk his one month old self up to his first parade

That’s probably enough ‘guido’s proximity to Endymion ‘ news for the moment

True dat. We always went between Carrollton and Jeff Davis.

As near to Lee circle as you can get. But only on the downtown side of Lee circle, on St. Charles.

The only way I know of to catch all three in one spot without relocating, is on St. Charles, between Lee circle and Canal St.

i would also highly recommend parking around Mardi Gras world and walking to St. Charles near Lee Circle. When all is over, it is a lot easier to jump on the bridge and head across to the West Bank and get out of the area by heading to the Huey P. Long bridge, via the West Bank expressway. This of course, is if you live west of the city. Not sure where you live, or will be staying.

As a side note. I also come from the West Bank for Bacchus, I take the Huey P. Long to the West Bank expressway and exit at O'Keefe and find a spot pretty easy, somewhere within the warehouse district, without any problem. I leave home about 730 to catch Bacchus along St. Charles, near Poydras without any issue whatsoever and am home in Metairie, about 45 mins after the last float passes. Use the West Bank to gain access to the area between St. Charles and the river. It is really awesome. Not a lot of people think about it, because they do not understand how to navigate in and out of that area, for fear of being "boxed in" with the parades rolling down St. Charles and eventually ending at the convention center. It is so easy, it is like; "is there a parade actually in the area?"
