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 rolled on February 20 at 6:30 p.m.

The theme was Venus Showgirls. The parade included 10 floats: their brand new emblem float and nine others rented from the Mobile Mystics.
