Maximize your parade time by planning ahead for restrooms, especially if you have young children.

The City of New Orleans provides portable restrooms for public use along the parade route.

See location map below or view Routewise for a map of public restrooms. 

Want a portable restroom of your own? 

Portable restrooms are allowed on private property. However, if you plan to charge a use fee, you need a permit. Do not place private portable restrooms on neutral grounds, public sidewalks, or other public property. Portable restrooms on flat beds in parking spots are considered abandoned property that can pose a security risk and will be towed at the owners’ expense.
