Bacchus parade is on, despite weather threat

The rain appeared to be a minor concern. Most had arrived at the parade route prepared.

“We have ponchos. We have our jackets. We have umbrellas. We have everything. We are set,” said Janell Weber of Baton Rouge, La., wearing a hat boasting long purple, green and gold streamers.

The previous night’s shooting was on the minds of revelers.

“It was very disappointing,” said New Orleans resident Carol Redmann-Bailey as she watched Thoth roll by. “I was disappointed and sad, but it seems like Bourbon Street stayed open. Laissez les bon temps rouler. Let the good times roll.”
