      Krewe of Oshun Parade

      Friday February 21 (06:00 PM)

      The Krewe of Oshun was founded in 1996 to provide members and their families a year-round outlet for wholesome entertainment and community service, culminating in a grand ball and a beautiful street parade. It is also one of the growing numbers of krewes stepping outside of the traditional pantheon of ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian mythos for their inspiration. Oshun, is a figure comparable to the Roman’s Venus, was the goddess of fountains, love, wealth and religion for the African people of Brazil, Haiti and Cuba. Her symbols are the peacock and the fan. The Krewe of Oshun calls its king “Shango.”
