Neptune's Daughters was established in 1995 by a group of women with a love of Mobile's Mardis Gras and its Mystic traditions. We have grown from a charter membership of 21 to 400 members in the past two decades. Our Emblem depicts King Neptune flanked by three of his mermaid daughters. In keeping with a mermaid's love of the sea, our signature colors are teal, white, and green.
Though most people associate Mardi Gras with New Orleans, Mobile, Alabama, began holding the festival in 1703, 15 years before it started in Louisiana. Based on a French Catholic tradition, the celebration is now a city-wide holiday in Mobile, where even schools close in order to celebrate. We Mobilians are a generous people and were glad to teach our New Orleans neighbors how to throw a party.
