The Krewe of O.A.K. holds its 30th annual Mid-Summer Mardi Gras celebration Saturday with the theme "Get Wet." Krewe members, costumed revelers and marching groups including The Organ Grinders, Tap Dat, Muff-a-lottas, Krewe of Bosom Buddies & Breast Friends and the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus' Cult of the Sacred Drunken Wookiee gather on Oak Street at the Maple Leaf Bar (8316 Oak St.). The parade is known for its minimalist and risque costuming and the krewe's irreverent and lascivious spirit. After some ceremonial salutes, King Robustus XXX Jamie Bernstein and Queen Cara-Mia Noto lead a parade to Palmer Park. A brass band will perform at the park and marching groups set up their own hubs. The event is BYOB (glass containers are not allowed). The krewe returns to Oak Street at 9:30 p.m.
