Fleur De Lis Data News Weekly Contributor

What’s up all my beautiful people of the 5-0-4.? It was an amazing Carnival Season. As a lover of all things New Orleans, I can say that it was great to see so many of our people trying to get to some sense of normalcy.

As you know we are a people who love to live life to the fullest, and this season, food, family, and fun was on full display. After two years of COVID-19 that’s changed people’s lives, New Orleans as always have shown the world why our way of life is the envy of the world. And, why people flock here to experience our city. Having our first full carnival in two years, and it was a ball for all.

“It has been two years since the Mardi Gras holiday has been celebrated in New Orleans. The Coronavirus has made me nostalgic for the parade season, Krewe Balls, and parties. This year I had the great privilege and opportunity to attend the Zulu Coronation Ball with my parents where I met Randolph Davis, a family friend, and the 2022 Zulu King,” says Terrol Perkins, a student at Xavier University.

Continuing he says “There were thousands of people attending the Ball and the atmosphere gave me a sense of normalcy. I felt as if COVID were a distant memory and we as a society had moved on, despite this not being the reality of the situation. I also gathered with my family and friends to enjoy the Endymion Parade, and, once again, I felt as if COVID had faded into the History Books. Hopefully, by this summer my hopes would have come into fruition and our lives will be completely normal. Happy Mardi Gras to all.”

“This Mardi Gras was about bringing the Company to the ORGINAL city. The passion of being able to represent the city and bring the city’s tradition to the followers of Mardi Gras Tyme. We have been going live on IG. Being a part of the Zulu is an extension of generations and traditions in the family. So, to be a part of it was a dream come true. Says Craig Jones, a New Orleans native, who presently resides in Maryland, He is the owner of Mardi Gras Tyme Catering and has a popular salt free spice on the market. He returned to spend time with family and friends, and to ride in the Zulu parade.

With COVID-19 still out there we are still asking all to be careful, mask up get vaccinated and boosted. Once we reach herd immunity, we can all get back to a more normal life, and we may be on our way to accomplishing that, but it will take all of us doing our part.

I know we can do it. I loved going out and seeing so many people enjoying what we do in the N.O. Of course, I as so many others are looking forward to an incredible festival season. Where we can all say “Laissez le bon temps rouler” (Let the good times roll). Until next time this is your people Fleur De Lis, giving you everything 5-0-4 and all things New Orleans. Celebrating our amazing and unique city, its heritage, traditions and most importantly, its people.
