The Krewe of Denham Springs is suspending all events associated with the upcoming Mardi Gras season.
The krewe released a statement Wednesday saying that they made the decision after considering the uptick in coronavirus cases.
According to reports, the cancellations include the 41st Annual Mardi Gras Ball that was scheduled for January 21 and the Krewe of Denham Springs Mardi Gras Parade which was scheduled for February 6.
The news comes as similar announcements have been made by the Krewe of Southdowns, the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club, and other Krewes across the state.
