Mardi Gras Laws on Ladders, Portalettes Pass Council

Mardi Gras is gearing up, and the 2014 season has some new laws that can see parade goers paying upwards of a $250 fine for violating any of latest parade provisions. The Council officially voted on banning portalettes, fining for "throwbacks" from beads to the floats, and other new regulations. 

Mardi Gras Laws Back on Council Agenda

Carnival is on the agenda once again at the New Orleans City Council's meeting on Thursday. The full Council will consider a slate of changes to the laws governing Carnival parade behavior. The changes, proposed by  District B rep LaToya Cantrell, include new regulations governing ladders, port-a-potties and "throwbacks."
