Date: Sunday, Feb 23, 2014 | Location: Slidell | Time: 1:00pm
The Mystick Krewe of Perseus of Slidell is the city's oldest Carnival organization, founded in 1970, and is named for the Greek god who slew Medusa.
Perseus hosts a ball and a thirteen-float parade, with nine double-decker floats. Each float rider constructs his or her own costume. The Krewe is made up of 170 members, whose throws include their famous hand-decorated plastic crabs, crab beads, slap bracelets, and cups.
