Mardi Gras is on!

Mardi Gras on for Feb., backers vow


NEW ORLEANS - Come hell or high water, Mardi Gras organizers are vowing to hold the city's signature celebration in February.

Tourism officials and parade hosts appeared before the City Council to insist the annual pre-Lent celebration - part family party, part bacchanalian blowout - will return this winter.

"We have to do this," agreed Councilwoman Jacquelyn Brechtel Clarkson. "We can't afford to miss a beat."

Mardi Gras generates as much as $1 billion in economic activity, and the raucous celebration draws an estimated 1 million people each year.

"Bringing Mardi Gras back will help people to start normalizing things," said Naaman Stewart, vice president of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, one of the largest parade organizations.
