Overnight Seawall parking rules during Mardi Gras

 Overnight parking will be allowed on the Seawall beginning 5:01 a.m. Thursday until 11:59 p.m. Sunday during the first weekend of Mardi Gras. During this time, the usual paid parking applies: $1 an hour between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

 We know some festival goers opt to show up early to snag a spot and pay the fines, but this creates headaches for crews trying to maintain the Seawall and prep for the parades and festivities.

 As such, there will be increased fines associated with parking OVERNIGHT on the Seawall on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday leading up to Mardi Gras to discourage the practice. The fine will be $250.

 This $250 citation will be in effect from 12:01 a.m. - 5:00 a.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week and next week. These fines are ONLY for illegal overnight parking, not during the day.
