The New Orleans Saints Superfans will also be riding in the parade as special guests. The Superfans participating include fan favorites Fleur-D-Licious, Who Dat Chef, Whistle Monster, Mack the Quack the Who Dat Clown, Gris-Gris Man, Soul Saint, Stunt Double Coach and the Saints Joker, all of whom plan to participate on a float decorated by Covington’s own Superfan, The Sign Man, Larry Rolling.The Bicentennial Parade will feature the city’s past, present and future by incorporating groups that represent every aspect of the city’s life. Floats and antique cars will hold the city’s dignitaries, including past and present mayors and city council members. Covington High School’s Marching Lions, the Covington Boys and Girls Club as well as other school, civic, military and veterans’ groups, and churches will all be represented.The approximately 3-mile parade route will begin and end at the St. Tammany Parish Justice Center. It will parade down Columbia Street, taking a right on Boston Street, turning left onto Jefferson Avenue, right onto 17th Avenue, then traveling up Tyler Street, turning once again on Columbia Street to end at the Justice Center. The giant loop will include neighborhoods normally not on parade routes, traveling through the historic West 20s and West 30s neighborhoods.The Southern Hotel in downtown Covington, currently undergoing restoration, is among the corporate sponsors, along with WalMart, Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket, the Covington Business Association and St. Tammany Parish Hospital. Additional sponsorship opportunities are still available. As part of a corporate sponsorship, businesses can either purchase float space for their own use, or sponsor another aspect of the parade with a monetary donation. All riders must provide their own throws, and corporate logo throws will be acceptable.“This is a historic, once-in-a-lifetime event that brings the whole community together to celebrate our fine City,” says Councilman Larry Rolling, Bicentennial Parade Chairman.If individuals or groups want to join in the fun and be a part of this historic occasion–either with a float sponsorship or as a marching group or by providing an antique car–please contact Larry Rolling at 985-234-9527 or RollingdistrictD@aol.com.
