Signature Floats

An innovative new float, the "gentle dinosaur" first appeared in 1972.
Bacchasaurus
Bacchagator
A Bacchus mainstay for years, the Bacchagator was introduced in the Krewe's 1986 parade. The 105-foot, three piece float can accommodate 86 riders. Originally debuted as green, the float was modified in 1997 to resemble the rare white "leucisitic" alligator that makes it home at the New Orleans Aquarium of the Americas.  The alligator returned to green in the 2005 parade and remains that way to the present date.
