Mardi Gras Marches Forward

With the first parade of the 2006 season less than 19 weeks away, there is a flurry of activity in Carnival circles. Next week several meetings are planned by Mardi Gras’ movers and shakers, including ones by the westbank Carnival clubs and the Jefferson Parish United Carnival Captains’ Association. Mardi Gras will also be discussed at next Wednesday’s New Orleans City Council meeting and will be a topic at the Greater New Orleans Hotel & Lodging Association’s meeting.

Mardi Gras Guide publisher Arthur Hardy spoke with representatives of 25 of the 33 Mardi Gras krewes that paraded this year in Orleans Parish. Surprisingly, 24 clubs announced their intentions to parade next year. The list includes Alla, Aladdin, Babylon, Bacchus, Carrollton, Chaos, D’Etat, Druids, Endymion, Iris, King Arthur, Mid-City, Morpheus, Muses, Okeanos, Orpheus, Proteus, Pygmalion, Rex, Shangri-La , Sparta, Thoth, Tucks and Zulu.
