BATON ROUGE – The Krewe of Southdowns has canceled their 2021 Mardi Gras parade and ball as a result of ongoing pandemic.
Krewe Captain and President Tad Haller introduced the choice Wednesday within the following assertion.
On behalf of Parade Command, and with a heavy coronary heart, I announce the Krewe of Southdowns is not going to be holding out conventional Mardi Gras Ball or Parade in 2021.
The well being and security of the general public and our members is our main duty. Regardless of COVID-19 vaccines being solely weeks away from distribution, it’s unlikely that most people may have ample numbers to soundly help the 2021 Mardi Gras season.
It’s actually unlucky that current circumstances prohibit the total Krewe of Southdowns expertise. Nonetheless, we may have a Mardi Gras Theme for 2021, and producing doubloons and t-shirts for buy.
