This is very welcome and exciting news for residents because Magazine Street is typically a very family-friendly environment and a wonderful place to watch the ladies of Cleo roll by. We cannot wait for Carnival season and hope other Krewes follow suit.

And P.S. If you have ever considered joining a Krewe, we do love and adore Cleo for so many reasons!
Thank you for your article. The Cleo website now states they will follow the traditional route but will NOT be traveling down magazine. Their site states that they will travel up Jefferson to St Charles. Your article reports that the parade will return to Magazine. Do you know which is correct?
The new route was announced on Sunday at the Cleo meeting – this is brand new information. As soon as the security is confirmed they probably will update the official routes, too. This is current and recent info and unless something changed again, Magazine Street is accurate.
