"We want to ensure that the Carnival season can be experienced by everyone, and in a safe environment."

NEW ORLEANS — The City of New Orleans is offering parade-viewing space at Gallier Hall for people living with disabilities.

A city spokesperson said limited spaces are still available but will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Nearly 40 visitors watched the parades from the ADA grandstand across from Gallier Hall over the past three days and more are expected for the second weekend.

"We want to ensure that the Carnival season can be experienced by everyone, and in a safe environment," Cantrell said. "We are saying yes to inclusiveness and yes to safe spaces for all of our people. We look forward to more of our people taking advantage of this opportunity to enjoy Mardi Gras."
