That’s what Mayor LaToya Cantrell has said that the Big Easy will hold its famous Mardi Gras celebration in 2022. She did add, however, that she that could change if the city sees a rise in COVID-19 cases.
This is the statement the city issues about Mardi Gras 2022:
“The good news ism we are on track for the return of Mardi Gras in 2022! Unless we see a dramatic turn for the worse in our COVID numbers, Mardi Gras will roll once again!
“Conversations around potential changes to some routes are in the early stages. No decisions have been made. We will remain in close contact with our krewe captains, and we invite their input.
“As we have said: we have concerns regarding the bandwidth and capacity of our first-responders, who have been under intense strain throughout the pandemic. When Mardi Gras comes back, we want to do it in the safest way possible: in terms of public health and in terms of public safety.”
There could be some changes, though, such as reduced parades, with routes being confined to just St. Charles Street.
