The all-female Krewe of Isis first started parading in Kenner in 1973 before taking the standard Veterans Memorial Boulevard route in Jefferson Parish.

Comprised of 250 riders and 21 floats, this Egyptian-themed krewe is known for its marching bands, dance teams and gloriously attired maids, as well as for its specialty throws including decorated flip-flops. 

Isis is an Ancient Egyptian goddess who was worshiped as the ideal mother and wife, as well as the patroness of nature and magic. She is known as a protector of the dead and goddess of children.
