Public Safety Tips

Parking Reminders

Parking is restricted along parade routes two hours before and after parades to be sure parade elements and sanitation crews can access the street. Parking enforcement personnel will be monitoring for illegal parking. 

  • Pay close attention to posted signs.
  • Don't block hydrants, driveways, sidewalks and fire lanes.
  • Don't park within 20 feet of a crosswalk, intersection, or stop sign.
  • Call 504-658-8100 for parking enforcement.

See additional Mardi Gras parking information.

Traffic Impacts

Before parades begin or when crowd size warrants, the New Orleans Police Department will close the route to vehicles. Plan ahead and avoid streets that intersect with parades. Additional intermittent closures will be necessary as parade elements travel across the city. Track the lead and tail of parades as they roll with our parade tracker at

RTA Impacts

The New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA) operates bus routes across the city. Some regular routes are altered during the Mardi Gras season: 

  • All parade detours start two hours before the parade start time.
  • Detours will remain in place until clean up crews’ finish cleaning the parade route.
  • All bus and streetcar lines not affected by parades will be on their regular routes.
  • Due to increased traffic and pedestrian movements, bus, and streetcar routes may be delayed.
