The mighty Krewe of Bacchus hits the Uptown route at 5:15 p.m. on Sunday (March 3). As Bacchus fans can tell you, the krewe is never stingy with its throws. This year look for all the usual goodies, plus highly prized individualized throws tossed by each float (love the gorilla-face football), plus an ultra- cool doubloon shaped like a bag of popcorn, befitting this year’s cinema-inspired theme: “Starring Louisiana.”

A giant statue of King Kong is one of the signatures of the Bacchus parade and was the inspiration of this year’s fabulous football throw.
