Do you remember The Krewe of House Floats?

Honestly, who can forget the gorgeous houses that were decorated for Mardi Gras during the pandemic.

New Orleans knows how to have a good time especially when it comes to Mardi Gras. And not even a pandemic can stop the city from celebrating the holiday.

House Floats were born out of the Covid-19 pandemic and were homes in the New Orleans area that were decked out with eloquent Mardi Gras decorations.

While the dream was to keep House Floats alive to coexist with the Mardi Gras celebrations things are a little different this year.

Stronghold Studios in New Orleans has released an interactive map of homes that they helped decorate and if you are heading into the city then you will want to stop by and check them out.
