The Krewe of Selene parades in Slidell, Louisiana on the Friday night before Mardi Gras. It came into existence in 1998, founded by a group of local professional women. Their first year began with a membership of 260 women, and the membership has since grown to almost 500 members.
The krewe is named after the Greek goddess of the moon from mythology. Selene was the companion to Endymion, the god of wine and merriment.
