Krewe of Tohwahpahsah was the first of three St. John the Baptist Parish parades that delivered throws and family fun during the first weekend of March. They rolled Saturday in Reserve.
The fun continued Sunday with back-to-back parades in LaPlace, starting with the well-established Krewe Du Monde rolling at 10 a.m.
This year’s parade introduces 10 large-scale floats pulled by tractors and provided by Mc Kinley J. Cantrell & Son Inc. Dance groups, cars and royalty are also featured.
Paradegoers can look out for signature apple throws starting with the Krewe of Dagé, which trails Krewe du Monde down the familiar LaPlace route on Sunday.
