St. Bernard Mardi Gras Parade Schedule 2015

the Knights of Nemesis

The 11th Annual Knights of Nemesis Parade will take place on Saturday February 22, 2014 at 1:00 PM starting at the St. Bernard Civic Center and following the traditional St. Bernard parade route. Nemesis expects to put 27+ floats on the street with 50 plus marching units.

On May 17, 2004 a group of one time members from the Krewe of Gladiators and several long time carnival parade riders came together and formed the Knights of Nemesis Social Club and Parade.

Nemesis sometimes appeared as a winged goddess. In her left hand she held an apple-branch, rein, lash, sword, or balance. Her attributes were like those of Tykhe: a wheel and a ship's rudder.

There is another aspect to the tale of Nemesis, and that was her role as one of the many paramours of the god Zeus. According to one source of the legend, Zeus (who was always fond of beautiful females) became enamored of the goddess. However Nemesis wanted nothing to do with him. She tried to flee from the god's unwelcome advances by transforming herself into a series of fish and animals. Finally, Zeus caught the object of his affection in the form of a swan while Nemesis was in the guise of a goose. In these shapes the pair mated, and as a result Nemesis later laid an egg from which the famous beauty Helen of Troy was hatched.

There are also indications that Nemesis was patroness of gladiators who fought in the arenas with the wild beasts during the imperial times and was also worshipped at Rome by victorious generals.

About the DVD
The first Mardi Gras in America was celebrated in Mobile, Alabama in 1703. In 2007, it is still racially segregated. Filmmaker Margaret Brown (Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt), herself a daughter of Mobile, escorts us into the parallel hearts of the city s two carnivals. With unprecedented access, she traces the exotic world of secret mystic societies and centuries-old traditions and pageantry; diamond-encrusted crowns, voluminous, hand-sewn gowns, surreal masks and enormous paper mache floats. Against this opulent backdrop, she uncovers a tangled web of historical violence and power dynamics, elusive forces that keep this hallowed tradition organized along enduring color lines.
