Celebrating Safely


A house in New Orleans, Louisiana, is decked out for Mardi Gras. The city is known for its over-the-top Mardi Gras celebration. This year, the event took place on February 16. Typically, the festival fills the streets with crowds, parades, and extravagant floats. For 2021, events were canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. New Orleanians have chosen to keep the party alive by decorating their homes to look like festive parade floats.
