Parades nearing a close

SLIDELL – There are two final parades to finish off the carnival season on this side of the parish.
On Friday, February 24, Slidell’s evening parade, the Krewe of Selene, will roll at 6:30 p.m. The theme this year is “Do You Believe in Magic?”
Founded in 1998, this 400-member krewe is named for the ancient Greek goddess of the moon, Selene, lover of Endymion, the god of eternal youth and fertility. Lighted wands are a signature throw.

The final parade of the season will take place on Mardi Gras day, Tuesday, February 28.
The Krewe of Chahta will roll in Lacombe at 1 p.m., and this year’s theme is “Spirit of the Wind.”
Named for Chahta-Ima High School, which many of the founding members attended and which itself is named for St. Tammany’s founding father, Fr. Adrien Rouquette, is comprised of floats, cars, marching units and horse groups. The parade starts at the Morocco Room and follows US 190 north to 17th Street, Fish Hatchery Rd., and ends at Lacombe Nursing Home.
