The Krewe of OAK will hold its 28th annual Midsummer Mardi Gras parade Aug. 23 at 7 p.m., according to a post from our partners at Uptown Messenger:

Known for costumes and props that veer wildly between utter decadence and literal minimalism, the “Outrageous And Kinky” parade will congregate at the Maple Leaf Bar in the 8300 block of Oak at 7 p.m. for a Royal Balcony Ceremony, then begin marching promptly at 7:30 p.m.

This year's theme? "Rub It All Over Your Body." 

There's no cost to march, and costumes and subkrewes are encouraged. For more information, check Uptown Messenger or the Midsummer Mardi Gras Facebook page
