We've got ideas to help you celebrate in spite of our foregone street festivals.
We’ve got ideas to help you celebrate in spite of our foregone street festivals.

First off, I get it. I was born and raised in New Orleans and, if you cut me, I’m sure I bleed purple, green and gold. So, I know how much it hurts to have to go without celebrating one of the most exciting holidays in the South – Mardi Gras.

The thing is, there’s still a serious health crisis lingering and we’ve got to be responsible citizens and do our parts to get COVID-19 under control. Of course, that’s why Galveston and New Orleans canceled Mardi Gras 2021, but it downright hurts.

Mardi Gras is the time of year when we throw caution and beads to the wind! (sigh) There'll be no Mardi Gras Mambo or marching bands either. That’s why we’ve come up with some authentic ideas to help you celebrate Mardi Gras New Orleans or Galveston-style in the safety of your own home.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!
