Oshun & Cleopatra Parades 2022 

It’s been 2 long years since floats rolled down St. Charles – and it’s wonderful having our Mardi Gras back! We’ve been parading since Jan. 6th but the Krewes of Oshun, Cleopatra and Alla were the first to roll giant floats spewing beads, plushies, cups and more.

Oshun has a lot of wonderful school bands and youth dance troupes. It was cold but the marching bands kept us moving.

Cleopatra lit up the Avenue with blinking medallions, headpieces, bracelets, swords and more. My Pussyfooters sisters looked great dancing past us, but I look forward to joining them for the Krewes of Carrollton, Muses and Thoth. We’re celebrating our 21st birthday and can hardly believe how many other adult dance troupes have cropped up in that time. Others that paraded in Cleopatra included the Amelia Earhawts, the Sirens and the Krewe of the Rolling Elvi.

We left before Alla because it was very cold and Saturday has 5 parades!

    Your photos are awesome! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Another wonderFULL set of pics. If it makes it any easier, it was 6 degrees (F) at parade time last night here in The Wilds Of East Ontario Canada. Let’s hope we’re both a bit warmer tonight. ;>)
    Merci Beaucoup!
