Mardi Gras Looks Different in the Time of Covid

Just because the traditional Mardi Gras parades and other activities and events may not be happening due to Covid, does not mean Mardi Gras fun is cancelled! There will be Mardi Gras house floats, king cakes, festive cocktails in bars and restaurants and more. Enjoy a virtual parade with real-life prizes via the Throw Me Something Bacchus! app. There is also a Krewe of House floats where home exteriors all over the city have been turned into floats. You can also check out this behind-the-scenes float building and decorating program. Learn how to make king cake, red beans and rice and other carnival fare through virtual cooking classes from the New Orleans School of Cooking. For more information about how you can celebrate Mardi Gras this year, visit Mardi Gras New Orleans. As the Mardi Gras' slogan says, "Laissez les bons temps rouler” or “Let the good times roll,” even during a pandemic!
