Actor Bryan Cranston Monarch of 2020 Orpheus Mardi Gras Parade

It is almost that time of year! Mardi Gras 2020 is just around the corner. February 2020 marks NOLA’s Mardi Gras season. One of the best known parades for beautiful floats is the Orpheus parade. The Orpheus parade, founded by Harry Connick Jr., Sonny Borey and Harry Connick Sr. in 1993, “is led by a cadre of Riding Lieutenants and the Orpheus Trojan Horse float followed by the 1,400 male and female krewe members enjoying their prestigious ride on one of 38 floats, including the Signature eight unit Smokey Mary ‘Steam Locomotive’ float and the Leviathan, a three unit 139 foot ‘Sea Monster’ float.”

The parade has seen many famous monarchs which include Quentin Tarantino, Sandra Bullock, Stevie Wonder, Joan Rivers, James Brown and Sean Payton. This year ‘Breaking Bad’ actor Bryan Cranston will reign.

Bryan Cranston stars in Breaking Bad as character Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher who is a meth lord. Cranston has earned not only an Emmy but also a Golden Globe, SAG, Tony and Olivier Award.

Other famous faces who will ride in the parade are “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” stars Charlie Day and Mary Elizabeth Ellis and country musician and Dancing with the Stars finalist Lauren Alaina.

To top the parade off, there will be the krewe’s “Orpheuscapade” party and concert with a line up including Alaina plus appearances by D.J. Jubliee, Choppa, and Cupid. The concert will honor the late New Orleans funk pioneer Art Neville who passed in 2019.
