Every year, the second-oldest college football bowl game takes place in New Orleans, bringing lots of additional visitors! On New Year’s Eve, the Allstate Sugar Bowl kicks off with a parade. Celebrate the New Year by experiencing a Mardi Gras-style parade with floats, bands, dancers, and other participants! The route will begin at Elysian Fields Avenue and Decatur Street at 2 pm, continue through the French Quarter, and end at Canal Street. The parade is free to attend for everyone.
