There were basically little to no Mardi Gras celebrations in Louisiana for 2021. And despite the surge in COVID-19 infections, residents of the Bayou State are hoping the weeks-long celebration can still be held safely.

While many of us here in Acadiana will be enjoying various festivities in our area leading up to Fat Tuesday, New Orleans is of course the hub for the big day.

This year the climax of celebrations wraps up on Mardi Gras Day, which falls on March 1.

If you want to plan a trip to New Orleans or a city close by to enjoy one of the many great parades, below is a complete list of updated parades in The Big Easy.
