There are a handful of New Orleans night parades which replicate the look and feel of Carnival a century ago, but Proteus, the sea god, does so with authority, since it first paraded over 125 years ago.  As Carnival’s second-oldest parading organization (and the oldest night parade) Proteus features the touches of the traditional Carnival celebration, including beautiful original floats (on chassis that date back to the 1880s), the king’s familiar seashell float, flambeaux carriers, and the Captain riding on horseback.  Check out the krewe’s web site for photos from last year’s top-notch procession.
