B97 is so excited to be back as a part of this only-in-New Orleans kind of holiday event. The family-centered parade is back, and will be even bigger and better this year including KELLIE AND ANA from the KIDD KRADDICK MORNING SHOW riding on the B97 float! 25 new floats, 9 high-flying Macy's-style balloons, marching bands, dancing groups and fun in the parade. The parade will start from The French Market with an extended route through Downtown, and will end with a post-parade holiday experience and concert in Lafayette Square!

Holiday festivities will continue in Lafayette Square from 1-3 p.m. with a family-friendly After Party Experience sponsored by Louisiana Feed Your Soul and hosted partly by Kellie and Ana! The After Party will include live musical performances from Maggie Koerner and Trombone Shorty along with members of the Trombone Shorty Academy, beverages from Yuengling, Wheatley Vodka, and Coca-Cola United, delicious food, holiday activities including photos with Santa, and more.
