Krewe of Okeanos
Date: Sunday, Mar 2, 2014 | Location: Uptown | Time: 11:00am
Founded in 1949, the Krewe of Okeanos is named for the Greek god of oceans and fertile valleys.
The Krewe was originally formed to bring the carnival to St. Claude Avenue, the founder’s neighborhood. In 1950, they made that dream come true. Their current route is the extended Uptown route through New Orleans.
Formed by more than 250 male and female riders, Okeanos is known for its elaborately-costumed captain and king.
Please note that tickets are available for grandstand seating on St. Charles Avenue, but tickets are not required to see the parade. If you arrive early enough, you can claim a spot on the route with a blanket and some chairs.
