Yardi Gras 2021…

With the decision to cancel Mardi Gras this year, the resilient population of New Orleans came up with the idea of Yardi Gras! Since floats will not be parading down St. Charles this year, the idea was to decorate homes throughout the city. They have utilized Mardi Gras artists and materials from past carnival seasons/floats to recreate the spirit of Mardi Gras. Here is a link to a great video talking about 2021’s Mardi Gras and some history of the carnival season/traditions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsxbNlCT8YA

While walking along St. Charles to a local bakery for a baguette, I captured some of the decorations. There are houses decorated all around the city, these are but a few I passed on our walk this morning.
