A photo album: The city's four Easter parades may have been cancelled, but that didn't stop Margarita Bergen and other New Orleanians from celebrating with style.
A note from Margarita Bergen
Easter 2020 was very special to me because I was not going to allow the pandemic virus get in my way, even though the annual Easter parades - including the Chris Owens Easter parade - were cancelled. But I still lined up my beautiful chapeau and my new yellow suit (since yellow represents Hope to me) and invited my brother, Lorenzo Bergen, to join me watching the Mass being televised by WDSU from the St. Louis Cathedral. Afterward we shared a modest, but healthy meal and once again we thanked the Almighty for his blessings and prayed for the sick and the bereaved.
