There is no better place than Royal Sonesta New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras. While this year we won’t see the traditional parades and other festivities, Mardi Gras is certainly not cancelled. Royal Sonesta New Orleans is bringing their favorite traditions to you wherever you are through virtual celebrations, social media contests, and more. Select on-site events will be live-streamed so you don’t have to miss the best of carnival season.

The annual Greasing of the Poles tradition, considered by many to be the French Quarterโ€™s official kickoff to Mardi Gras weekend has been reimagined to be a small, private event this year, but one lucky social media fan will get to take over the coveted opportunity to be one of the greasers.
