The Krewes of Proteus and Orpheus are rolling by the ParadeCam lens starting at 5:15 p.m. on Lundi Gras (March 4).
The Krewe of Orpheus is the musically themed krewe co-founded by Harry Connick Jr. The celebrity monarch will be Mario Lopez, host of "ExtraTV'' and the nationally syndicated radio show "On With Mario.'' Also riding will be Connick and country music star Trace Adkins, along with stars of TruTV’s “Impractical Jokers”: Sal Vulcano, Brian “Q” Quinn, and James “Murr” Murray. Proteus is a 137-year-old organization that favors small, exquisitely detailed old-school float design.
