The City of Scott announced Monday, December 14, that the city's 2021 Mardi Gras parade has been canceled.

The city says the decision was made with support of the Scott Business Association and police and fire departments.

Mayor Jan-Scott Richard says that they look forward to returning in 2022.

"We remain vigilant and focused on keeping our community safe, most importantly our citizens, our parade goers, our public safety personnel, and our volunteers," said Richard. "It is a difficult decision, yet we remain focused on representing the whole not the part."
