Jensen Ackles Chosen as 51st Bacchus for Krewe of Bacchus in New Orleans
The Krewe of Bacchus announced this morning on Facebook that Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester, Supernatural) will reign as Bacchus (King) at the 51st Krewe of Bacchus.
According to the Krewe of Bacchus website, it “is one of the most innovative Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans Carnival history. In 1969 Bacchus broke with Mardi Gras traditions and announced that a national celebrity would reign as King”, and this year it is Jensen Ackles’ turn. The Krewe of Bacchus has had other celebrity kings in the past, including Will Ferrell, John C. Riley, Elijah Woods, and Nicolas Cage.
As you can see on the Krewe of Bacchus website, the King is always dressed the part, and that is certainly something to look forward to!
Ackles will lead the parade on Sunday, March 3, 2019. On their Facebook post, the Krewe of Bacchus reported, “Bacchus is partnering with WWL-TV to broadcast the Bacchus parade at 10 p.m. from the Morial Convention Center where the Bacchus Rendezvous is held annually. The parade will also be available on WWL-TV.com and on mobile devices.”
