Happy Mardi Gras! We love these beautiful Krewe of Proteus float designs - from New Orleans Mardi Gras parades gone by. Shown here are designs from (top to bottom) 1895, 1902, 1904, 1927, 1936, and 1939. Each year’s floats reflected a different theme - 1895, for example, should be a favorite for any “Thor” fans out there, with its depiction of “Asgard and the Gods.”
