New Orleans will have "Float Houses" Instead of Parades for Mardi Gras



After last year's Mardi Gras celebrations led to a huge number of COVID cases, the parades are cancelled for this year. But New Orleans is bringing the parade flavor back anyway, by decorating houses as if they were traditional Mardi Gras parade floats! A project called "Hire a Mardi was Artist" is putting artists, float builders, and craftspeople to work transforming homes into colorful art installations. The money raised through donations pays for the work, and also helps struggling musicians and others who are impacted by the Mardi Gras cancellations. -via Boing Boing


We were talking about this at work today. I like the idea of helping out the people who normally make money during mardi gras, but i personally wouldn't want to do it to my house. I mean A) its gonna cost alot probably and B) what happens when you gotta take it all down. You'll have to do that yourself. I guess its cool if you got the money and time for it tho.
