Krewe of Omega
The mardi GRAS krewe of tangipahoa parish
For over 30 years our family friendly parade has brought joy to adults and children from across the country. Come watch us roll this February!
More than just a parade, the Krewe of Omega is a social organization that builds great friendships while celebrating our Louisiana heritage and Tangipahoa pride.
We are dedicated to our community and members often volunteer to help with community improvement projects. Helping others is one of our core values.

Our Krewe mascot gets hand decorated by Krewe members. These are special keepsake throws you'll see when we roll!
Each Spring Krewe members and their families gather for a Family Picnic with lots of fun, games and water fun for the kids.
Children ages 6-18 may apply to serve on the Krewe of Omega Royal Court. Princesses and Escorts of the Court serve as Krewe Ambassadors throughout the Mardi Gras year.
Before the parade, Krewe members Trek throughout Tangipahoa Parish, spreading Mardi Gras fun and inviting city Mayors and citizens to come see the Parade.
Our annual black tie event falls in the Mardi Gras season. Tickets are available to non members as space allows so book early.
