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!
