Krewe of Proteus throws: tridents, seahorses and mermaids

The Krewe of Proteus, named for an early sea-god, will conjure up the sea at their parade on Monday (Feb. 27) at 5:15 p.m. Uptown. Expect all things aquatic at this year's parade, themed "Der Ring Des Nibelungen." 

Be prepared to catch light-up tridents, plush fish pillows, seahorse necklaces and mermaid medallions, as Proteus brings the seaside to the streets of New Orleans. Other throws will include footballs, bracelets and light-up flambeaux.
