Rex 2017: See artistic renderings of the floats

Rex rolls on Mardi Gras (Feb. 28) at 10 a.m. Uptown with the theme "Carnival Fetes and Feasts,'' a colorful look at how Carnival is celebrated around the world. In this gallery, see artistic renderings of the floats in the Rex 2017 parade.

The names of the floats reflect the theme: "Venetian Carnavale,'' "Rio de Janiero Carnivale'' and "Saturnalia,'' for example.
