The crowds are coming for Mardi Gras this year.

New Orleans hotels aren't yet back to pre-pandemic capacity, but business is definitely looking up.

Hotels in the area are reporting 80% occupancy for the Mardi Gras weekend.

NOPD is getting ready, too, but with fewer hands on deck this time around.

They have just over 1,000 officers in a department that needs about 1,600.
