Metairie's all-female Krewe of Isis, which has paraded with the name that honors an Egyptian goddess for more than 40 years, proved that in 2015, the moniker still stands for fun.
The krewe's procession through the streets of Metairie on Valentine's Day, Saturday (Feb. 14), showed an unyielding resilience in carrying on a long-standing Carnival tradition of Jefferson Parish. The 18-float parade featured a theme of "Music of the Night" and throws included flip-flops, cups and illuminated beads.
