The all-male krewe parades through the streets of Mandeville on 14 floats illuminated by LEDs and street effects. The 2019 OKO King is Jim McIntyre and the OKO Queen is Cathy Schultz. The Grand Marshals are former Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert and WWL personality Christian Garrett.  The krewe brings back the Pineloon this year, a treasured catch similar to the Zulu Coconut, and will have gold King’s Doubloons, Silver Krewe doubloons, throw t-shirts, beads, cups, swords, and a ton of light up throws.
The official call and response of the hearty Krewe is: "HAIL ORPHEUS" "HAIL YES."

The parade route begins at Asbury Lane and Hwy 22 and follows to West Causeway Approach, crosses over Hwy 190 to East Causeway Approach, ending at the junction of 190 and 22.
