Lundi Gras

Proteus is the second oldest Krewe in the  history of Carnival (1882). This year’s theme of the Mythology of Astrology featured Zodiac floats among others.

This year’s theme for the Krewe of Orpheus was Delectable Delights. Orpheus is fairly new (1993), but they debuted with a splash as one of the largest and most celebrity studded parades. This year’s parade featured Saints head coach, Sean Payton, actor Steve Zahn, Harry Connick, Jr., LSU baseball coach, Paul Mainieri, and musicians Smashmouth and Taylor Dayne.

Here’s an 8 minute video of both parades.

Here’s a view from on a float.

The parades culminate at the Balls. Here’s Orpheus pulling into the Convention Center to end their route.
