Krewe of Thoth lavished throws on Mardi Gras 2015 parade crowds, Feb. 15 (Photos)

The Krewe of Thoth deployed 40 floats for Mardi Gras 2015, following the unique route that takes it past New Orleans hospitals and health care facilities. It was the largest of three daytime krewes that took to Uptown streets on Sunday (Feb. 15).

The theme of the 2015 procession was "Thoth Says, Express Yourself."

The krewe's 1,600 riders took that theme to heart, expressing themselves by showering parade crowds with tons of custom throws, including doubloons, beads, towels, poker chips and fedoras.
