St. Joseph parades on Saturday

The 42nd Annual New Orleans St. Joseph’s Parade is scheduled for this Saturday, March 10, 2012. Sponsored by the Italian American Marching Club, the parade is comprised of floats followed by a procession of marchers dressed in black tuxedos. The parade and marchers will make their way through the French Quarter. Marchers usually hand out silk flowers and fava beans, and dance and sing with the parade watchers.

The highlight of this parade is the "rolling" St. Joseph Altar float! Here is last years float.

Viva San Giuseppe!
