Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino will help kick off the carnival celebrations for the 2014 Mardi Gras by leading the annual Orpheus Krewe Parade in New Orleans on 3rd March.

Quentin Tarantino will kick off New Orleans Mardi Gras Celebrations

The Director has been selected as the 2014 Celebrity Monarch and will lead a 27 float procession, themed The Enchanted City, through the city's streets on the Monday night before Mardi Gras begins.

The Krewe made the announcement saying "With his vibrant imagination and dedication to richly layered storytelling, Quentin Tarantino has established himself as one of the most celebrated filmmakers of his generation".

We wonder what special throw Tarantino will shower on parade-goers? You can follow @visitneworleans and @neworleanscvb to keep up to date with the procession and see pictures.
