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.

The theme was Diamonds (Baseball) Are a Girl's Best Friend. The parade included 10 floats rented from the Mobile Mystics.
