Founded in 1949, the Krewe of Okeanos is named for the Greek god of oceans and fertile valleys. It is sponsored by the Sonaeko Club (that’s Okeanos spelled backwards)

Okeanos was originally formed to create a neighborhood parade on St. Claude. It later moved to the traditional Uptown/Downtown route on St. Charles Avenue.

With more than 300 male and female riders, Okeanos is known for its elaborately-costumed captain and king. In place of a traditional ball masque, the club presents an elegant Coronation Ball, where the king is presented. (The queen is selected by random draw during the ball).
