BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Organizers of Spanish Town Mardi Gras announced that they have made the difficult decision to cancel their popular ball, previously scheduled for Jan. 30, 2021.
“The (organization’s) board decided to cancel the ball after receiving word from the local fire marshal that all events at the River Center are at this time limited to 250 attendees, masks, social distancing, no dancing, and no alcohol after 11 PM,” reads the organization’s statement on their official Facebook page.
Krewe organizers also said the option to postpone or cancel the parade is still being considered. “The possibility of having the parade (scheduled for February 13th) is still undecided. The SPLL board will meet with city officials on Friday to discuss the logistics for holding a parade under the current state and local restrictions.”
