Phoenix parade will roll at 5 today

NATCHEZ — Rain or shine, the Krewe of Phoenix parade will roll at 5 p.m. today.

Lineup begins on Broadway this afternoon. The parade will turn left on Rosalie, and, when it reaches Canal Street, will proceed to Main Street. The route will continue to Rankin, and left over to Franklin Street and end up back on Broadway.

Krewe of Phoenix parade Director Curtis Moroney emphasized that revelers should not park on Broadway before, during or after the parade, which can keep floats from rolling and returning.

When it comes to the possibility of rain, Moroney said the weather will have to be dangerous to cancel the parade.

The National Weather Service in Jackson predicts a chance of showers, with thunderstorms also possible after noon today.

“Spot showers, drizzle, light rain, we’ll do it anyway,” Moroney said. “And if it rains, that’s a great time to catch beads because everyone else goes home.”

Moroney said if the police chief says it’s too dangerous, or if a particular float doesn’t want to participate because of rain, that’s fine.

“We feel like we planned a parade, and we will go forward with it and provide opportunity for anyone who wants to roll,” he said.
