Rex rolls in New Orleans: See photos of the Mardi Gras parade

The King of Carnival made his rounds Mardi Gras morning (Feb. 28), surrounded as ever by the thousands upon thousands of his adoring public. Rex rolled through New Orleans, from Uptown through the CBD, and stopped for its traditional toasts with city officials.

The annual parade, soaked in tradition, was followed by the annual meeting of the courts of Rex and Comus.
