Today, the Jefferson Parish Council approved an amendment, which paves the way for the parish to host an off-season Carnival-style parade called “Tardi Gras”.

The move comes after Councilmember Jennifer Van Vranken introduced the amendment at Wednesday’s council meeting. Hearing no objections the motion was approved.

This paves the way for the parish to host Tardi Gras in Metairie as early as September.

The suggested parade route would start on Severn near West Napoleon, and then roll on Metairie Road, Bonnabel, and Veterans Boulevard, where it will end at Martin Behrman.
