Boing Boing: Mardi Gras spirit perseveres with “Yardi Gras” house floats

Boing Boing: Mardi Gras spirit perseveres with “Yardi Gras” house floats. “Although COVID-19 has grounded the traditional Mardi Gras parades and celebrations this year, New Orleans will always find a way to party (albeit with less titties and barfing in the streets). Artists are transforming houses across the city into ‘stationary floats’. The idea started as a joke on social media and has grown into a citywide phenomenon. Participating neighbors plan to play music and/or throw beads to passers-by from their front porches or yards, all while safely social distancing.”
