Parades - Where to watch Uptown parade?

We want to see the Uptown parades on Tuesday (28th) morning. From Mardi Gras past, I think I watched them on Canal Street.....they seemed to turn there. Is this correct, or where should we go to watch them?

New York City, New...

This year, all parades go down St. Charles Avenue (starting at Napoleon) and turn left on Canal, do a U-turn at Burgundy and then roll down the French Quarter side of Canal to Chartres before turning back into the downtown area to disband.

Canal Street is actually fun this year. Good crowds so far and not as many teenagers as years past. I also like watching from St. Charles in the Garden District. They are very different experiences.

If you want beads, check the paper for the END of the route. Riders are generally unloading excess "stuff" as no one wants to take it home!
