NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Even with nasty weather potentially on its way, one of the biggest parades in the run-up to Mardi Gras is set to roll.
The Krewe of Bacchus, led by Actor G.W. Bailey, was scheduled to roll at 5:15 Sunday evening, even though the National Weather Service said thunderstorms were likely from 3 to 6 p.m.
Parades sometimes roll early or on another day due to weather, but so far, not this one.
Bacchus spokesman Clark Brennan said, “We’re rollin’.”
Bailey co-stars on “Major Crimes” on TNT and is known for the “Police Academy” movies and the series “The Closer.”
He also runs a nonprofit group that focuses on children being treated for cancer. Bailey invited more than two dozen from across the country to join him in Sunday’s parade.
