With just Krewes of Druids rolling, Wednesday used to be a quiet kickoff to 7 straight days of parades. Druids is a smaller krewe with less than 200 members, all masked and anonymous. I always enjoy the school bands and adult dance troupes like the Organ Grinders and Crescent City Fae.
Since 2012, the diverse all-female Super Krewe of Nyx has joined the Wednesday festivities hosting literally thousands of riders. The hand-made glittery purses have quickly become treasured throws like Muses shoes and Zulu coconuts. Angela Hill led the way for the over-40 floats and a variety of dance krewes including the Sirens, Disco Amigos and my own beloved Pussyfooters. Can’t wait to dance with them in Muses next!
