Hermes, d'Etat, and Morpheus

Friday, February 28, 2025 at 5:30 PM

The Friday before Mardi Gras features the very traditional and punctual procession of the Krewe of Hermes, the oldest night-parading krewe. The cutting-edge satire of Le Krewe d'Etat is always a crowd pleaser, with innovative and fun throws such as glowing gargoyles. The Krewe of Morpheus, named for the winged god of dreams, throws sleeping caps and stuffed moons.

For all of the Mardi Gras parades, you'll have a commanding comfortable view from our grandstand seating on St. Charles Avenue. Equipped with restroom and within easy access to downtown parking and to a large selection of food and beverages, the Royal Grandstand is available for all Orleans parades, from February 21, 2025 thru Mardi Gras Day.

Grandstand seating for the popular parades go quickly, so order today!
