CST to broadcast Saints parade

by Nathan Stubbs

Euphoria over the New Orleans Saints continues to boil over into the streets of New Orleans. Tonight, the celebration will be in full swing as the city hosts a parade in honor of the Super Bowl champions. It will be a unique affair, featuring 12 marching bands and more than 250 Saints players, coaches and staff members. New Orleans 10 premiere Mardi Gras krewes will each be contributing one signature float to the parade, another first for the city. The downtown parade route is also unique, starting at the Saints home field, theĀ  Superdome, and traveling up Poydras through the Central Business District on St Charles Ave. and Canal Blvd. before ending on Convention Center Blvd just before Henderson Street.

Those unable to attend can catch the excitement the weekly "Saints Tonight" on Cox Sports Television (Ch. 37 to both Cox and LUS subscribers). The show will be broadcasting live from the parade from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Check out CST's Web site for more Saints postgame coverage.
