Happy Fat Tuesday!

Mardi Gras is officially in full swing and funnyman Will Ferrell was on hand in NOLA to kick off the parade by being this year's grand marshall, the King of the Bacchus parade.

Ferrell waved on the huge crowd of fans who lined up early to get a glimpse of Ferrell wearing the traditional king's robes and crown.

Declaring New Orleans "arguably the best city in the world," he threw beads to lucky parade attendees. And, we're sure a few ladies showed off the goods! Ha!

Ferrell's been in town for three months filming his new movie The Campaign with Zach Galifianakis.

What a great way to finish his time in The Big Easy!

    Sorry, Perez, gotta correct you on this one.He's actually not the King of Mardi Gras, that's Rex. He was the King of Bacchus, a different Krewe. Carnival Krewe Rex is actually the "King of Mardi Gras" here in New Orleans. We take our Mardi Gras krewes pretty serious. :)

    Bacchus is a Sunday parade, not one that tends to roll on Mardi Gras day.

    Looks like fun, would love to be in NOLA for Mardi Gras sometime. My husband was in Mobile, AL on business one year and they have a smaller one there as well.

    You people who aren't from New Orleans are annoying with your jokes about girls showing their tits for Mardi Gras. Guess what? Mardi Gras is a family event and the only idiots who show their tits are the tourists down on Bourbon street. Stop making Mardi Gras out to be an excuse to show your tits when locals would NEVER do it because there are kids at these parades.
