  • New Orleans: No parades allowed for Mardi Gras 2021, but other celebrations still possible

    One of the persistent questions regarding the upcoming Carnival season is whether parades will be permitted in New Orleans.

    A section of Mayor LaToya Cantrell's page on the city's website appears to have addressed that question, and the answer is "No."

    ... During a press conference Tuesday unrelated to the parade cancellation, Cantrell reiterated earlier statements that while the Mardi Gras holiday is not canceled entirely — since it is a cultural and religious event — this year "it's just different."

    "Based on the state guidelines in place right now, that is true," Cantrell said in relation to the prohibition on parades.
