It will be a long, but fun-filled, day of Mardi Gras parade-watching on Sunday (Feb. 15) in New Orleans. If you'd rather not weather it on the route, then watch the krewes of Okeanos, Mid-CityThoth and Bacchus from the comfort of your house by tuning into the NOLA.com Mardi Gras Parade Cam.

The Krewe of Okeanos starts the day at 11 a.m. at the corner of Magazine Street at Jefferson Avenue. "Okeanos Parades the Kings" down the avenue with 21 floats. Signature throws include crawfish trays, button magnets, and compact.

Krewe of Mid-City follows, kicking from the same corner at 11:45 a.m. The 18-float parade depicts the theme, "Dey All Axed For You." Throws include plush animals, T-shirts, potato chips, and doubloons.

The super-Krewe of Thoth hits the streets at lunchtime, starting at  Tchoupitoulas and State streets. The 40-float parade bears the theme, "Thoth Says, Express Yourself." Thoth is known as the Krewe of Shut-ins because of its special route, designed to pass a number of hospitals and health care facilities. The 2015 throws include doubloons, beads, towels, poker chips, fedoras and more.

Take a bit of a break. And, then join us for the Krewe of Bacchus. It takes off at around 5:15 p.m. at Napoleon Avenue at Tchoupitoulas Street. Actor John C. Reilly reigns over the superkrewe's 31-float parade, which depicts the theme "Children's Stories that Live Forever." Look for signature floats such as the Bacchagator, the Bacchasaurus and the Bacchawhoppa whale. Throws include coloring books, puzzles, sidewalk chalk and doubloons.
