Order of Venus
OOV is one of the newer ladies' groups, founded on March 19, 2000. It started with "only a few members," according to the group, but grew quickly.
By OOV's 10th anniversary, it was 168 members strong. These ladies are known as big throwers, sometimes chucking huge stuffed animals.

This year, the Order of Venus paraded on Monday, February 24, at 6:30 p.m. It was just the second year that OOV had that night all to itself, since the Mobile Mystical Ladies changed parading dates.
The theme for the Order of Venus parade was A Night With Victorian Venus Vixens, and it included eight floats rented from the Mobile Mystics and the Conde Cavaliers.
