A mardi gras parade, complete with floats and a marching band, will feature at a one-off event to celebrate the forthcoming National Football League's American football match at Wembley on Sunday.
TBA Global, the company organising the event, is planning a parade, with dancers, musicians and floats flown in from New Orleans making their way from King Edward VII Park to the stadium.
The entertainment will start at 11.15am and there will be stag-gered road closures on Park Lane, Wembley Park Drive, Empire Way and Engineers Way from 11am until noon.
TBA Global has also applied for a licence to supply entertainment and alcohol for up to 19,500 people between 11am and 4pm. The event will take place in the car park on Engineers Way, in Fulton Road, which was previously called the Palace of Industry.
The company is hosting a celebration in the tradition of American tailgate parties, in which fans arrive early to games and have barbecues.
The event, for ticket holders attending the game, will take place before the American football match at Wembley Stadium between the San Diego Chargers and the New Orleans Saints, which kicks off at 5pm.
An outdoor stage with a sound system will be built to feature a live relay of performances, including cheerleaders and Mardi Gras dancers. There will also be a computer gaming unit with free use of games consoles.
More than 90,000 fans are expected to attend the Chargers-Saints game, which will be the second time the NFL has come to Wembley, the first being in October 2007, when the New York Giants beat the Miami Dolphins.
An objection to the plans was made by Brent Council's public safety team, but will be withdrawn if the company meets certain conditions.
Dipa Bhatt, a public safety officer at Brent Council, said: "Providing the licensee is willing to accept the following condition, public safety section would withdraw the representation."
The conditions include the maximum number of people being 19,500, the company performing a risk assessment and details of any temporary structures being given to the public safety team.
The alcohol and entertainment licensing sub-committee was due to consider the application at a meeting today (Thursday), but it has had no objections.
