Lundi Gras festivities at the Riverfront mark the 25th anniversary of the restored custom of Rex arriving by boat to begin his reign over the city. A military flyover will mark the occasion. Kermit Ruffins headlines the musical lineup at Spanish Plaza (3 p.m.-8 p.m.). The tradition of kings Rex and Zulu meeting (6 p.m.) started in the 1990s. The Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club celebrates in Woldenberg Riverfront Park with music by Charmaine Neville, Rockin' Dopsie and others. Free admission.
