Orpheus was one of two parades to roll Monday. The krewe, founded by Harry Connick Jr. and Sr. in 1993, rolled with the theme “The Orpheus Imaginarium.” The parade featured celebrities like actor Mario Lopez, singer Trace Atkins and a few members of the New Orleans Saints – Marshon Lattimore, P.J. Williams, Michael Thomas and more.
