Country musician Lauren Alaina also will be part of the procession. And she will headline the krewe's annual post-parade captain's party, the "Orpheuscapade," which will feature a tribute to New Orleans musician Art Neville, who died this year. The parade is one of the Mardi Gras season's biggest. Some 1,200 krewe members will ride 30 elaborate floats in a parade that also features 32 marching bands and clubs.
