If you missed seeing the fantastic Mardi Gras Indians this Mardi Gras season, you still have another opportunity to see them march in their elaborate costumes and feathers at Mardi Gras Indians Super Sunday on March 18, 2018. The procession begins at Washington Avenue and LaSalle Street at the A.L. Davis Park, goes down Martin Luther King Blvd, then down Claiborne Avenue and back to the A.L. Davis Park. 

No one is certain as to why this celebration coincides with St. Joseph’s Day, Italian-American and St. Patrick’s Day parades. However, there have been reports of the Indians "masking" on St. Joesph's Night since World War I; some think they chose this night to blend in with the revelry of the Catholic Italians. In 1969, the parade formed and rolled through the New Orleans streets at night. The next year, they chose to have an afternoon parade on Sunday instead, a choice that has become a tradition.

Regardless of its history, people love watching the Mardi Indians in procession. Locals and visitors gather to watch the parade of Indians displaying their elaborate costumes, plush feather headdresses, and Mardi Gras spirit.
