NEW ORLEANS (February 11, 2013)--A 330-foot long super float built by the Krewe of Endymion had to be split in half to make a turn during its parade Saturday in New Orleans.
Shelton Carr, who was working security at the Superdome, said the float was split and then re-attached so it could continue to roll.
The turn was only a minor hiccup.
The parade finished its route ahead of schedule.
The float ended the route at the Superdome, where thousands of revelers were decked out in black tie attire for the first major event at the venue since the Super Bowl power blackout.
The multimillion-dollar float holds more than 200 riders.
The parade's celebrity grand marshal was Kelly Clarkson.
