'Floats in the Oaks' coming to New Orleans City Park
Experience a part of Mardi Gras during this historic year.
The 2021 Carnival season is the first since 1945 where no Mardi Gras parades will roll anywhere in the region. We might not have Mardi Gras parades this year in New Orleans because of the coronavirus pandemic, but families can safely participate in a parade-type event, by viewing stationery floats from their cars, while also supporting City Park.
All can participate by wearing Mardi Gras costumes and decorate their cars.
Thursday, February 4th through Sunday, February 14th
Weekdays 5pm -10pm and Weekends 1pm - 10pm
Tickets on sale now for $10 to $20 per car and the funds will support the park's maintenance and operation.
"The Floats in the Oaks project is a first in the history of Mardi Gras; an assemblage of Mardi Gras floats from multiple krewes in one place where they can be enjoyed safely by locals and visitors during COVID. So everyone in our community can continue to enjoy the Park”. says Rob DeViney, COO.
