First, open the app store and search for "parade tracker"
Click the "Free" button next to "WDSU Parade Tracker" from Channel 6 and download.
Once downloaded, open the app and make sure to click "OK" when it gives you this prompt.
Select the parade you want to track...
And Boom! It gives you the route (blue line), you're location (the blue dot), and once the parade rolls, the parade's position in real time.
Happy Mardi Gras!!!
