New Roads, LA-The City of New Roads announce the extension of Floats in the Prettiest City on the Water. The stationary parade will operate Wednesday, February 17 through Friday, February 19 between 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, February 20 through Sunday, February 21 between 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Old Cotton Seed Mill, 311 Mill Street.

“The recent icy and treacherous winter mix forced a curfew in Pointe Coupee Parish and cancellation of dates for Floats in the Prettiest City on the Water,” said Mayor Dukes. “The show of support and excitement for Mardi Gras this year even amid the pandemic displayed the true spirit of Louisianans. We’re excited to extend our dates for everyone to come and experience Floats in the Prettiest City on the Water."

All previously issued tickets are valid for new dates. In order to follow COVID-19 guidelines, patrons are asked to remain in their cars at all time. Face masks are required. Tickets can be purchased at newroads.net or bontempstix.com.
