This 400-member, all-women’s night parade is a procession of 20+ floats built by Mardi Gras Decorators, hand-made elaborately decorated purses (Selene’s signature throw), lighted star wands and a variety of specialty beads. Selene closes the Carnival parade season in Slidell, parading on Friday, February 17, 2023 at 6:30 p.m. The parade theme is "25 Years of Empowering Women."
Queen and King Selene XXV and the Grand Marshal will be announced as the event nears.
Founded in 1998 and dedicated to community outreach year-round, the Krewe of Selene supports Ladies for Liberty by sending items to troops overseas, a food drive to support Second Harvest Food Bank, and Project Christmas, which helps local families in need.
