Mayor LaToya Cantrell is requesting that the captains of New Orleans Carnival krewes provide "drop dead" dates for deciding to go forward with parades and major parties in the upcoming season.
In an email sent out Wednesday, Mayor Cantrell said the dates will be used to determine the status of Carnival 2021.
The mayor has assured parading groups that if they cancel in 2021 due to the pandemic, they will not lose their parading spot in future Carnivals.
The news comes as Cantrell has not yet announced whether parades will be permitted in the upcoming season due to the ongoing pandemic.
