The beautiful Queen Victoria Hanzo, graced the Endymion throne through the streets of New Orleans to the voices of the cheering crowds.
Victoria is a high school senior and the fifth member of her family to reign over New Orleans largest Krewe.
Music led the way on the Grand Marshal, Kelly Clarkson’s float, with a band playing at the front of the float.
It was a sweet sight to watch the interaction of Kelly Clarkson and her fiancee, Brandon Blackstock as they rode and distributed Mardi Gras goodness to the crowds during the 2013 Endymion Parade.
The streets were filled with smiling, shouting spectators waving their hands for the attention of the maskers riding by with their various throws.
Bands, dancers, and gymnastic gyrators filled the streets as Endymion rolled and the party continues on through the streets until Wednesday morning comes around.
laissez le bon temps roulette in New Orleans!
