Below is a list of Mardi Gras parades and events in Acadiana. New Orleans already has canceled Mardi Gras parades for 2021, with parades in Lake Charles, Point Coupee, Crowley, Youngsville, Morgan City, Baton Rouge's Spanish Town and even Mobile, Louisiana Mardi Gras' tame Alabama cousin, canceled as well. Most of Acadiana's most-anticipated carnival balls, including Rio and Apollo, were canceled last fall.

If you would like to add your parade or event to the list, send an email to news@katctv.com.

KATC reached out to the State Fire Marshal's Office to see if Gov. John Bel Edwards' latest emergency proclamation places any restrictions on parades. According to a SFM spokesperson, the governor’s proclamation does not address parades, therefore, there are no guidelines for them to be conducted safely.

Section 2E of 209 JBE 2020 reads:

Crowd sizes are limited to no more than 25% capacity as set by the State Fire Marshal with a maximum 150 people in any single outdoor space where individuals will be close proximity to one another and unable to maintain strict social distancing of six feet apart from individuals who are not immediate household members.
