Thousands of Saints fans lined the streets of New Orleans along the Krewe of Bacchus parade route, to catch small, foam footballs thrown by Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees.
The black gold quarterback served as monarch of Bacchus, one of the biggest parades of the Carnival season.
Brees threw 10,000 black and gold footballs, along with the usual beads and doubloons, from his perch atop the float that was designed to look like a Roman chariot.
