Downtown Super Sunday will now take place on May 12

Downtown Super Sunday, originally scheduled on April 7 but postponed due to bad weather, will now take place on May 12.

On Sunday, March 17, Uptown Super Sunday brought the city’s Mardi Gras Indian tribes to the streets of Uptown New Orleans. Attracting thousands, the celebrations and parades are some of the city’s most cherished displays of cultural heritage.

For those unable to attend, Downtown Super Sunday will offer them an opportunity to see the incredible masking Indians in their breathtaking costumes and phenomenal beadwork. As always, folks are urged to be respectful when taking photographs and giving the Mardi Gras Indians the space to perform, congregate and celebrate without having cell phones and cameras crowding them.

Downtown Super Sunday’s new date of May 12 coincides with Mother’s Day, making it a perfect New Orleans outing for the family. Around 1 p.m., the Indians will begin marching from the banks of Bayou St. John, at Orleans Ave. and Jefferson Davis Pkwy. Heading down Orleans Ave., they’ll make a left on Broad St. and a right on St. Bernard Ave.
