NEW ORLEANS, La., (KNOE 8 News) - This coming Tuesday, February 12th is Mardi Gras.

The city's glitziest, most star-studded parades of the Carnival season roll this weekend, including one with a float being touted as the biggest in New Orleans' history.

Mardi Gras may be Tuesday, but more than a dozen parades roll in the days leading up to Fat Tuesday.

The Krewe of Endymion's "super float" rolls Saturday night in New Orleans, led by pop star Kelly Clarkson.

Sunday's Bacchus parade will include more than two dozen child cancer patients, who will ride with Bacchus celebrity king, actor G.W. Bailey.

On Monday, actor Gary Sinise and New Orleans musicians Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews and Harry Connick Jr. will ride in the Orpheus parade.

The Carnival season culminates Mardi Gras day with street revelry and the pageantry of the Rex and Zulu parades.
