At the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, we’re always looking for creative ways to tell the world about Carnival season in Shreveport-Bossier. In 2014, we partnered with photographer Jim Noetzel to create a time-lapse of Shreveport’s main Mardi Gras parade route on the day of the annual Krewe of Centaur parade. Noetzel shot thousands of photos from several angles and combined the photos into a short, fun video.
Here’s the resulting time-lapse, capturing the Clyde Fant Parkway and Shreveport-Barksdale Highway portions of Shreveport-Bossier’s main parade route over the course of a major parade day:
The 2015 Krewe of Centaur parade will roll on Saturday, Feb. 7. Other major parade dates include the Krewe of Gemini on Saturday, Feb. 14 and Krewe of Highland on Sunday, Feb. 15. We’ve built up a fairly large collection of videos documenting the Mardi Gras experience in Shreveport-Bossier, which you can view on our Youtube channel.
