NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Blue Collar Comedy's Ron White will join the Krewe of Orpheus during Monday's parade.

“I've spent many a great night in New Orleans but somehow never made it to Mardi Gras. I'm also pretty sure I've traveled the streets of New Orleans on every conceivable form of transportation, except a float,” said White.

In addition to White, celebrity notables rolling with Orpheus 2015 include country superstar Dierks Bentley; NCIS: New Orleans cast members Lucas Black, Zoe McLellan, Rob Kerkovich and CCH Pounder plus show creator Gary Glasberg; Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump; and the homegrown winner of RuPaul's Drag Race, Bianca del Rio aka Roy Haylock.

The Orpheus parade rolls on Monday. It's followed by the Orpheuscapade, headlined by Dierks Bentley at the Morial Convention Center.
