Krewes of Druids and Nyx Parades!

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!

    This looks like so much fun. Which of these outfits was your favorite?

    • I’d love to look and pick one but it’s almost 3am and I’m still working on my Krewe of Muses and Babylon post! My busiest blogging season of the year AND our busiest season of the year.
