Flowers for Orpheus
This is one of the Mardi Gras parade floats belonging to the Krewe of Orpheus. Orpheus is a relatively recent New Orleans Mardi Gras super krewe, which puts on one of the largest parades in the famous Carnival celebrations of New Orleans. The krewe was founded in 1993 by Harry Connick, Jr., Sr., and Sonny Borey.
Most of the Orpheus floats have a large amount of flowers, gilding and gold leaf. The flowers are made out of cardboard, wire, paint, gold leafing, and paper-mâché. This float was seen at the Mardi Gras World tourist attraction. Visiting guests can tour a working warehouse where floats are made for the Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans.
This is really a "must see" spot in New Orleans! They will even pick you up, and drop you off, right at your hotel!
