Part of the Bayou Classic, it is a traditional Thanksgiving weekend event. This annual event is one of the country's greatest college sports rivalries, bringing the fans and alumni of Southern University and Grambling State University to New Orleans each November. A week of events featuring a parade, fan festival and battle of the bands culminates with Saturday's Bayou Classic football match-up. Annual Bayou Classic Parade starting at 9:30 a.m., from Elysian Fields Ave. at N. Peters St., finishing on Loyola Ave. at Perdido St. The parade will have the elements of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, floats, military units, and more. In other words, expect a great show.
