Any band heads know which Mardi Gras parades Southern University or any HBCU bands are participating in this week? Preferably Thursday to Sunday?

Southern will be in Zulu Parade as the featured band. Usually Louisiana bands dominate Mardi Gras.

McDonogh 35 and St. Augustine both marched in Mobile weekend before last -

Bama St and Tuskegee and sometimes some of the other HBCUs in Alabama tend to make an appearance Mardi Gras Monday and /or Tuesday
