It’s no secret that Mardi Gras will look a lot different this year, but fortunately, there’s no shortage of creativity in a city like New Orleans. Experts at overcoming obstacles, New Orleanians have already begun to flex their creative muscles to plan experiences that replicate the joie de vivre of the city’s favorite season. With everything from drive-thru parades to house floats, the people of The Crescent City are ensuring that Mardi Gras 2021 will be one for the books. 

One of the most notable parade alternatives is the newly formed Krewe of House Floats, which will see many houses across the city turned into Mardi Gras floats for the entirety of Carnival season. And if that seems like a daunting task, well, Clandestine Events & Experiences is here to help. No strangers to elevating the extraordinary and inventing the unforgettable, this year, we’re offering services to fully transform your home into the float of your dreams for a safe and festive experience.

From extravagant banners and paper mache flowers to string lights lining your roof and float riders in your windows, we have the ability to make you feel like you’re riding in your favorite krewe’s parade without ever having to leave your front yard. We can also install ladders for your kiddos, adorn the trees with beads and “hire” a marching band (don’t worry, they’re just cut-outs). Because no float is complete without a tractor and a sign, just tell us the name of your float and we’ll make sure the whole neighborhood knows it too. 

Since our services are as unique as each client we work with, feel free to make any request — big or small. No idea is too crazy for us, as we want to do everything we can to help you replicate the magic of Mardi Gras at home. In conjunction with our team of local experts, the Clandestine team will make your house float the envy of all your neighbors.
