The Krewe of Bacchus, one of the most popular of the giant superkrewes, rolled down the traditional Uptown parade route Sunday night (Feb. 26).

Each year, the krewe, named for the god of wine, picks a celebrity to rule as Bacchus. This year, actor Jim Caviezel took the role.

The parade theme this year was "Bacchus Salutes the Saints 50th."
