 Order of Butterfly Maidens

The Order of Butterfly Maidens was formed in 2000 by a small group of ladies who had been members of other parading groups.

The idea was to form a parading organization that would stay fairly small, so all of the members would truly get to know one another. Some groups are so large that some members don't even recognize each other.

The OOBM paraded for the first time in 2003, and the organization celebrated its 10th anniversary during its parade of 2011.

The group currently holds its ball at the Fort Whiting Armory, and the emblem, Madame Butterfly, wears a ball gown and beautiful butterfly wings.

This year, OOBM will parade on the night of February 15.

There was some funky stuff going on with these parade routes again. While the Maids of Mirth took Route G, starting and ending at Cotton Hall, OOBM and the Krewe of Marry Mates behind them both followed Route A, starting and ending at the Civic Center.

The plan, which was in its second year, was to let MOM pass through the intersection of Claiborne and Church streets, which is roughly a third of the way through Route G, and start the Butterfly Maidens as soon as the fire truck at the end of the MOM parade passed that intersection.

The OOBM theme was What Happens in Vegas ... They had seven floats, including the beautiful emblem float by The Royal Artists, which debuted last year, and six floats rented from the Conde Cavaliers. Grand Marshal was Tera Johnson. Costumes were by Bienville Costumes.
