In case you missed it, last month Jensen Ackles (Supernatural, Days of Our Lives) was announced as Bacchus for the 51st Krewe of Bacchus, which is taking place this weekend.
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. Ackles joins previous celebrity kings including Will Ferrell, John C. Riley, Elijah Woods, and Nicolas Cage.
The Krewe of Bacchus takes place on Sunday, March 3, 2019, and is exclusively partnering with WWL-TV. You can view live coverage of the parade featuring Jensen Ackles on Channel 4, WWL TV’s mobile app, and Facebook page.
The King’s float carrying Jensen Ackles will lead the parade, so don’t forget to tune in on Sunday, March 3, at 5:15 when the Krewe of Bacchus begins.
