If you’re heading to New Orleans for the Mardi Gras festivities this weekend, be on the lookout for the KISS Army!

The Endymion parade is scheduled to role at 4:15pm this Saturday. It is said to be the biggest parade in all of carnival, having more than 3,000 members.

Post-parade is the Endymion Extravaganza. KISS is set to headline the show, along with acts FloRida, and KC and the Sunshine Band at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The plan is for band members to be in the parade, however, due to a scheduling conflict with soundcheck, members of KISS may not make it onto the floats at the beginning of the parade.

That doesn’t mean Gene Simmons won’t be on the floats at all, though! Endymion founder and captain Ed Muniz, told WWL-TV he hopes to put him in a limo and have him meet up with the Grand Marshal float somewhere between Broad and Carrollton avenues. He is hoping to have him in the parade as early as possible, and traffic willing.
