NWLA Mardi Gras Assoc. Encourages Cancellations of Coronations, Etc; Krewe of Demeter and Aquarius Still Plan Annual Parades

Captain of Captains for the Northwest Louisiana Mardi Gras Association, Tracy Herrin, is encouraging local Krewes to cancel Mardi Gras events due to the coronavirus. The Mardi Gras parades are still scheduled to roll in early 2021 if it is safe and responsible to do so.

“We are asking our local Krewes to cancel festivities and grand bals that lead up to the 2021 Mardi Gras season because of the enormous lead time for planning and venue selection,” said Herrin. “However, no decision has been made yet to cancel the 2021 parades.”

Specific events impacted include the theme announcements, coronations, Midway to Mardi Gras parties, 12th Night Celebrations, and grand bals.

“The safety and well-being of the community, as well as krewe members is our top priority,” said Herrin. “We will continue to closely monitor the situation, consult with city officials and keep the public informed.”
