SHREVEPORT, La. - Grab your family and head out to the Krewe of Highland parade this weekend.
The parade will roll at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26 with Renzi Education and Art Center leading the parade as this year’s Grand Marshalls.
Queen XXII LeVette Fuller said, “The Renzi Center staff and students exemplify everything we celebrate about the Historic Highland Neighborhood: diversity, creativity and community. The generosity of spirit in the directors, faculty and volunteers of the Renzi center is worth celebrating on its own. The impact of this creative, beautiful and loving space on the children who participate in programming is palpable and worthy of our highest recognition.”
The parade route is three miles in length and more than 100 units are expected to be included in this year’s parade. It begins at Gilbert Dr. and Gregg Ave. and continues north up Gilbert Dr., west on Gladstone Blvd., north on Creswell Ave, east on Herndon St., south on Highland Ave, east on Olive St., south on Centenary Blvd, back to Gladstone heading west, and ending at Gilbert Dr. and Gladstone Blvd.
