We used to refer to OOV is one of the newer ladies' groups. But they group is 20 years old now.

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.

A few years back, the Order of Venus lost its parading partner, Mobile Mystical Ladies, when that grouped switched to a day parade on the Saturday before Fat Tuesday. OOV was all alone on Monday night until the Order of Many Faces joined them a few years back.

In 2017, OOV debuted the first float they own, a beautiful new emblem float, and others are coming, according to officers in the group.

This year, OOV paraded on February 17 at 6:30 p.m. To celebrate their 20th anniversary, the theme was A Gatsby Night - Venus's Roaring 20th. For the first time OOV had six of their own floats. Plus, there were a couple of floats rented from the Polka Dots for the Marshals and eight fundraising floats from iHeart Media.
