GRETNA, La. (AP) - The Krewe of Gretna has formally asked for permission to parade on Mardi Gras behind the Krewe of Grela, returning a truck parade to the Jefferson Parish city for the first time in 14 years.

Truck parade Captain Michael Benedetto and organizer Jessica Welty presented their plans to the Gretna City Council earlier this month, Nola.comThe Times-Picayune reports.

Benedetto who runs the Krewe of Jefferson truck parade in East Jefferson said that krewe has a number of west bank members who want to parade at home on Fat Tuesday.
