Philadelphia (CW Philly) — Instead of playing his usual role, a supernatural hunter, Jensen Ackles was royalty for the day on Sunday, March 3. The actor reigned as King Bacchus LI in the 2019 Krewe Of Bacchus Parade. 

Ackles posted a photo of himself decked out in his elaborate costume on Instagram. “King Bacchus LI…here we go!!! Mardi Gras 2019,” he wrote.

The parade has grown and attracted a number of notable celebrities over its 51-year history. Will Ferrell, Andy Garcia, and J.K. Simmons, just to name a few, have all portrayed King Bacchus in past years.

This year’s theme was “Starring Louisiana, based on movies and television shows filmed in Louisiana, the Hollywood of the South.”
