Mardi Gras: Babylon Parade Floats

In New Orleans, Mardi Gras season is roaring. Last night kicked off the start of some of the bigger parades from the krewes of Babylon, Chaos and Muses. These are photos of the floats from the 2014 Knights of Babylon float den before they moved out to the parade site. 2014 marked the 75th anniversary of the Knights of Babylon krewe.

These floats can accommodate between 20-40 riders. Just imagine yourself riding on top of one of these floats tossing out beads to the crowd. If you want to read more about the different sides of Mardi Gras, sidewalk side and neutral ground, you can find that here.

Floats from the 2013 Knights of Babylon parade can be found here.
