UPDATE: Crane demolition has been delayed. Krewe of Boo is back on for this evening as planned!
— NOLA Ready #HardRockCollapse (@nolaready) October 19, 2019
What a bummer! The Krewe of Boo parade celebration for this evening has been cancelled due to the crane demolition happening at the site of the Hard Rock Hotel collapse. The parade was scheduled to begin at 630pm tonight and meander through the French Quarter and Central Business District.
For the past week, the city of New Orleans and first responders have been working tirelessly to determine what to do following the collapse at the Hard Rock Hotel. With an expanded evacuation zone and explosives coming into play today, it’s just not safe for the parade to go on.
More info to come on this story. No information on rescheduling has been announced yet.
