'Saint' Nancy Parker honored by Krewe of King Arthur
NEW ORLEANS - Over the weekend, the Krewe of King Arthur honored Fox 8 News' former anchor Nancy Parker by deeming her New Orleans' newest saint, and unveiling a float with a portrait-like caricature of Parker with a halo over her head.
It's the second time this Mardi Gras season that "Saint Nancy Parker" has been recognized.
A float memorializing her was also included in Rex's parade.
The Krewe of Nyx, which will roll on Wednesday, also has created a signature throw that will honor Parker. Before her death, she'd been selected as the Krewe's grand marshal for 2020.
Parker died in a plane crash in August 2019.
