Alternate Ways to Celebrate Mardi Gras this Year

While this year's Mardi Gras season will look yet again vastly different from previous years, there is no reason why we can't still enjoy a bit of fun this carnival season. Manny Randazzo's offers you a way to have a slice of Mardi Gras safely in your home.

We all know how everyone misses those big parades and crowds of people. This year, let's play it safe and enjoy the Mardi Gras season in your home. Randazzo's is ready to take your orders from home, so you can have your traditional king cakes delivered right to your door. While we can't promise you parades and masquerades, we can offer you some safer alternatives for your Mardi Gras celebration. 

Whether you are alone or with immediate family, you could always enjoy a slice of Mardi Gras while watching classics films set in New Orleans. Nothing says family fun like enjoying Disney's classic tale of The Princess and the Frog. If Disney is not quite your slice of cake, take a look at Interview with a Vampire, based on Ann Rice's novel, a prolific writer and native to New Orleans. Looking for something a little more vintage? You might enjoy A Streetcar Named Desire. This adaptation of Tennesee Williams' southern drama will have you entertained from start to finish. Celebrating New Orleans culture with films and our delicious king cakes is sure to lift your spirits for the season. 

If you are an avid parade lover and are sad to not be able to spend time partaking, you could always bring the float to your own home! Some New Orleanians are taking it upon themselves to decorate their homes like some of their favorite Mardi Gras floats. If you don’t want to take the time to decorate your own home, the Krewe of House Floats plans to create a digital location map of homes who will be engaging in the festivities. 

If movies aren't your idea of a good time, you might celebrate the Mardi Gras season by having a Mardi Gras feast with all your favorite Creole dishes and, of course, one of our famous king cakes. Spend your Mardi Gras teaching your children how to cook the best New Orleans style cuisine and reminiscing over past Mardi Gras parades and celebrations. 

Whatever your choice is, let Randazzo's help make this year's Mardi Gras season special with our delicious king cakes. After all, our king cakes are what makes the Mardi Gras season so special.
