What better name than “Poseidon” for a krewe in Slidell, a community surrounded by water. The co-ed Krewe of Poseidon, named after the Greek god of the sea, earthquakes and horses, has grown to be one of the largest krewes on the Northshore. They typically roll with over 600 riders and and nearly 30 floats, including super floats, tandems and doubles. Poseidon prides itself on offering keepsake throws, including tridents, medallion beads, footballs, doubloons and cups. Expect to catch lots of “light-ups.” When you attend the Krewe of Poseidon parade, you can expect to catch something out of the ordinary.
Along with being committed to fun, the Krewe of Poseidon is dedicated to supporting the Slidell community. They do so through the promotion of social interaction and philanthropy.
