If Macy’s can do it on Thanksgiving, why can’t Bacchus? On November 23, The Krewe of Bacchus announced that its 2021 parade will be virtual.
Bacchus is introducing a new "Throw Me Something Bacchus!" mobile app that will bring Carnival and New Orleans to every corner of the world in a safe, COVID-free way.
How do you do throws, you ask? According to Bacchus Captain Clark Brennan, the app gives its users the ability to catch and collect virtual throws every Sunday during Carnival season. What’s more, players will be able to create their own avatar, trade throws with other players and even trade select virtual throws for actual throws.
Then, on Bacchus Sunday, February 14, 2021, you will be able to stream the live parade in the app. Imagine! More than 1,600 Bacchus members will be virtually tossing their float's signature throws as well as personalized throws.
The app will be available for download for Apple and Android devices before the beginning of 2021 Carnival season.
