Every year, Gambit does the Lord's work by documenting the efforts of Endymion fans to claim their turf on the parade's Mid-City route (who could forget the Krewe of Chad?). Five days from the parade, Gambit reports the spray-painting brigade is out in full force. (The space-saving officially started at least nine days in advance of the parade.)
Notable space-savers of 2016 include "BRAD," "MIKE" and "JASON." The Gambit post has the full gallery.
This is likely just the beginning, so you might want to grab your spots now. Or just show up early on Saturday and watch the parade like a normal person.
