City Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell, who has been spearheading a review of the city’s Mardi Gras ordinances, said she is open to exploring the idea of changing the parade schedule to include routes other than St. Charles Avenue, according to a report by Monica Hernandez of our partners at WWL-TV.

“It’s maybe reaching out to other neighborhoods to see who is interested in taking on the load,” Cantrell said. “Again, you don’t want to make those decisions that will involve and have an impact on neighborhoods without engaging them in the discussion.”

  1. It’s about time! I’ve been pushing for this for years. Let’s get this done for next season!

  2. Wait – aren’t three neighborhood parades from the West Bank moving to the St. Charles route because they can’t sustain membership as a neighborhood parade?
