About this Deal
Mardi Gras parades will not be permitted next year at New Orleans' annual festival, but city officials are saying the holiday is definitely not canceled.
Mardi Gras, to be celebrated on February 16, 2021, is a religious holiday, and therefore cannot be canceled.
City officials are trying to find ways to celebrate and mark this occasion safely. Though the city will still allow visitors -- with both Bourbon Street and Frenchmen Street remaining open -- the city still requires everyone to wear masks in public and maintain social distancing. "It is highly recommended that time in the city's entertainment districts be limited and social distancing observed with mask wearing," according to the mayor's website.
