Mardi Gras Krewes
 

Okeanos
By Arthur Hardy

Okeanos

The Krewe of Okeanos was organized in 1949 by civic-minded business leaders who were eager to bring a Carnival parade to St. Claude Avenue, their neighborhood’s main street. The club is named for the Greek god of oceans and fertile valleys and is sponsored by the Sonaeko (Okeanos spelled backwards) Club. Okeanos presented its first ball and parade in 1950. The original parade route has changed, but the imaginative club continues to excel. In place of the traditional bal masque, the club presents an elegant Coronation Ball at which its queen is selected by lottery.
