According to The Advocate, a Jefferson Parish representative said that, “we’ve had some calls from New Orleans parades, but nothing definite,” hinting that some Orleans Parish parades might take place in Jefferson Parish next year. 

Compared to Orleans Parish, Jefferson Parish Carnival has only has minor problems, so there could be a possibility of Orleans Parish parades rolling in a new location.

A Jefferson Parish representative has commented saying that plans for Carnival 2021 are still in up in the air though.

The deadline to apply for a parading permit in the parish was extended by three weeks into late August.
