The 2010 NFL season will kick off in New Orleans with a parade to ring in its 91st season and celebrate the New Orleans Saints' Super Bowl title.

The Krewe of NFL Kickoff Parade will travel through the French Quarter in New Orleans beginning at 5 p.m. CT on Thursday, Sept. 9. Fans can line up along the parade route and see the specialty NFL floats and throws (beads) in the parade. The area's finest marching bands, local residents, local chefs and former NFL greats from around the league will be on hand.

The parade kicks off "NFL Opening Kickoff 2010 presented by EA Sports." It is the ninth annual football and music festival and will be televised live, from 7:30-8:30 p.m. ET on NBC and NFL Network. All the festivities lead up to the season opener between the Saints and the Vikings at the Superdome.

This is the seventh consecutive year the NFL has begun the season with the reigning Super Bowl champions hosting the opening game in their stadium on a Thursday in prime time.
