The new year has settled in and now it's time to focus on Louisiana's favorite time of year. It's Carnival season and the festivities have already begun. We are already celebrating Robin Thicke as King Bacchus 2020 this year and the Internet is here for it. 

The Krewe of Bacchus is a super krewe (an organization that hosts a parade during Mardi Gras season) that is known to put on a big show during its parades each year.

The 2020 theme is Wild, Wild West which will take over 21 themed floats. Expect to see light-up bolo ties and light-up cowboy hats thrown out for revelers to catch.

You'll also hear music from 2019 American Idol winner Laine Hardy and Parish County Line.

And you'll be seeing Robin Thicke sporting a shiny crown because he has been named King in the 2020 Krewe of Bacchus Parade, which takes place the Sunday before Mardi Gras (Feb. 23). 

It's no coincidence that vocalist (and hottie) Robin Thicke was chosen as Bacchus LII. He reigns 32 years after his father Alan Thicke who represented the parade as Bacchus XX in 1988.

Robin is proving that he's the cutest family man ever by reminisicing on his first rodeo in the parade alongside his father.

On this Instagram post, Thicke notes, "I rode on the King’s Float with my father when I was a boy and it was one of the best experiences I ever had with him."

He then goes on to reveal his excitement that his son (Julian), two daughters (Mia and Lola) and wife (April) will be joining him to celebrate.

Fans are showing lots of support on the Facebook announcement made by the official Krewe of Bacchus Parade page.

One user in the comments section says, "HAIL BACCHUS
KING THICKE!!! I think it is very cool that they are continuing on a great tradition as his father road as king and now him and hope that his son too may reign some day. Keeping true to the traditions. Love Louisiana and our southern hospitality."

Other users follow with several comments stating "Hail Bacchus!" 

Previous Kings include big names like Will Ferrell, Anthony Mackie and Drew Brees.

The parade will take place at 5:15 p.m. on Feb. 23 on the corner of Napoleon and Tchoupitoulas. It will end at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

More Mardi Gras Shenanigans include these balcony parties that actually have cheap VIP tickets.
