HOUMA, La. (AP) - The krewes of Hyacinthians and Titans will
roll an hour earlier so Houma residents can catch the Carnival
parades and make it home in time for the Super Bowl.
Hyacinthians will kick off at 11 a.m. Feb. 7, 90 minutes earlier
than scheduled, followed immediately by Titans.
Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Vernon Bourgeois made the change so
residents and krewe members will have enough time to enjoy the
back-to-back parades and not miss a minute of the Saints-Colts game
at 5:30 p.m.
In Larose, the Krewe of Versailles will roll at 11 a.m. instead
of noon that Sunday.
In Thibodaux, the Krewe of Ambrosia is scheduled for 12:30 p.m.,
followed by Shaka at 2 p.m. Krewe officials said a time change has
been discussed but a decision has not been made.
