City statement regarding appeals court ruling


The City is pleased to announce that Mardi Gras will proceed as planned and scheduled on February 14, 2020, as the result of an appeals court ruling issued Thursday.

The Court of Appeals for the First District of Texas denied the motion of Mr. Flores and his associated companies seeking an injunction that would dramatically change the current structure of the city-sponsored 2020 Mardi Gras event.

The appeal will continue and the City will submit its appellate brief on February 25, 2020.
