King of Bacchus, J.K. Simmons, visits Children's Hospital

The 2018 King of Bacchus, actor J.K. Simmons, had quite the visit to Children's Hospital on Saturday.

Simmons' visit was a part of the Bacchus Mardi Gras tradition. Each year the king visits with children at the hospital and gives them Mardi Gras trinkets, like shirts, cups and doubloons.

"It's beautiful to see all the families, the support that all these kids have, and see the positivity from their families and then from the kids themselves. It's a heartwarming thing to witness," Simmons said.
