Be a part of the funkiest Carnival any of us will likely remember, where Covington homes and businesses become the floats. Covington Krewe of House Floats was created for those who wish to safely participate and have fun in this most unusual carnival season. The event takes place January 23 to February 17, 2021.
The deadline to register and be guaranteed a listing on the official map of house floats is January 15th. All participating businesses and homes should be fully decorated by January 23. There is no official parade time or date, as this is an ongoing event for Carnival season and Mardi Gras (Tuesday, February 16).
The theme "Rollin' on the 3 Rivers" is broad and it is completely up to the business or house float owner how they wish to decorate their "float". While it is not necessary to hire a professional float designer or artist, there are artists from both the north shore and the south shore that are interested in helping. You can check out some of these artists on our Covington Krewe of House Floats facebook page.
There is no fee for the event, but you may donate any amount to help offset costs. All proceeds, after costs, will be donated to the Northshore Food Bank.
