The Pharaohs is an interesting bunch. Its parades are not as big as the more-established men's groups, but they are always different - and very Egyptian.
The Pharaohs was formed in 1985 by two Mobilians, who had been members of several New Orleans krewes, as well as a Mobile mystic society.
The group started parading with rented floats, but after few years, purchased floats from a bankrupt krewe in Pass Christian, Mississippi.

This year, the Pharaohs rolled on February 11 at 6:30 p.m.
This year's theme was Warriors of Horus, and the parade included eight floats by the group's float committee, with special artwork by Jessica Bonner.
