 Maids of Mirth

MOM 2017

One of Mobile's first two women's parading groups, the Maids of Mirth, first paraded in 1950, just days after the Order of Polka Dots broke the gender barrier. Members of the Maids, however, are quick to point out that their organization incorporated first.

Catherine Cook Haas was called "the guiding hand" of the MOM by Mardi Gras historian Emily Staples Hearin. The name of the group, as the story goes, was chosen from a list of suggestions created by the Dominoes, another ladies' organization.

MOM paraded this year on February 15 at 6:30 p.m. for the second year on Route G. The new route begins and ends at the Infant Mystics new den, Cotton Hall, because that's where the MOMs now hold their ball.

The MOM theme was Sugar Rush. The parade included nine floats, designed by the committee and built by Rhonda Odom McCullough. Costumes were by Seams to Be.
