What's that thing that's happening in Louisiana this weekend? Oh yeah, it's Mardi Gras. The 15th Krewe of Artemis Parade rolls at 7 p.m. Saturday. This is the Capital City's all-female parade. Expect interesting throws (high heels, say what?) and festive music. Get more information at

The 15th annual Krewe of Artemis parade will be postponed until 7 p.m. Saturday due to inclement weather forecasted for Friday night. 

"When the National Weather Service said we would have a thunderstorm warning that meant we would have had to cancel the parade," said Melanie Uzee, who is serving as this year's queen. "So we had to make a quick decision and everything worked out."

The route will remain the same. The parade includes 17 New Orleans' style floats and 10 local marching bands, according to a new release.
