Mardi Gras Parades Cancelled in Thibodaux

On Tuesday, December 8, 2020, Mayor Tommy Eschete and staff members met with the five local Mardi Gras Krewes to discuss the viability of parading in the City this upcoming Mardi Gras season. After a thorough review and assessment of the potential impact that parades during the current COVID-19 pandemic could have in our region, Mayor Eschete has made the decision to prohibit all parades during the upcoming 2021 Mardi Gras Season.

 

Mayor Eschete stated that “He regrets to have to enact such a directive, but the current COVID crisis leaves him no alternative.  In addition, he sincerely wants to thank all of the local krewe leadership for supporting his decision which was ultimately based on the health and welfare of our citizens and visitors.”
