The New Orleans “Black and Gold Super Bowl Parade,” set for 5 p.m. local time today, will look a little something like this:
More than 250 Saints players, coaches and staff members will be throwing beads from a dozen of the area’s premiere Mardi Gras floats.
"I think that this is the first time that you’ll ever see all these floats together at one time, and very well could be the last time you ever see all these floats together," said Barry Kern, president of Blaine Kern Studios, which is overseeing the event.
Included will be the signature floats of Endymion, Bacchus, Rex, Zulu, Alla, Caesar, Tucks, Muses, Orpheus and Babylon, he said.
Hey man: Zulu AND Orpheus IN THE SAME PARADE. Unprecedented. And if that wasn’t enough (and it wasn’t), the parade route will also feature dozens of local marching bands and the Ying Yang Twins. Seriously. They’ll be performing this:
We’re certain Indy would’ve had a similar celebration had they won.
