Laissez les bon temp... wait...
« on: February 13, 2021, 12:45:51 AM »
The parades have all been cancelled, but the mayor wants to shut down several streets for an "entertainment district" to get people downtown and spending money. So far, he has zero support from the police, fire department, and health department.

But...

Some people have decorated their homes and made some kind of group map so people can go around and see them, and the Comic Cowboys (the most..."risque"... of the societies has permission to park their floats along the street outside the warehouse where they build them so people can have a "drive by" parade. I will not be surprised if other societies do the same. So, Mardi Gras isn't dead, but it is somewhat lessened in scope.
