The Krewe of Poseidon's 2019 Mardi Gras parade will roll on Saturday, February 16 at 6pm. This year's theme is "We Will Rock You."
The Krewe of Poseidon parade features over 600 riders on 28-30 floats, each representing such popular songs as "Sharp Dressed Man" (ZZ Top), "Viva Las Vegas" (Elvis), "Rock 'n Roll All Night" (KISS), and songs by Chicago, Elton John, Foreigner, Huey Lewis, Billy Joel and more. Doug and Michele Tymkiw will serve as King & Queen Poseidon IV.
This co-ed krewe was founded in 2015 with a goal of providing the citizens of Slidell and the surrounding areas with an exceptional parade indicative of the traditions and history of New Orleans Mardi Gras. Originally a day parade, last year the krewe became a night parade, rolling at 6pm.
Starts at the intersection of Berkley Street and Spartan Drive, and follows a route northwest to Highway 11, northeast to Hwy 190, and east through town just past the intersection of 190 and Kensington Boulevard.
