The Krewe of Muses is a crowd favorite. Fun floats include the giant stiletto, the bubble bath and the rubber duckies. I dance with the Pussyfooters and we were thrilled to be celebrating our 21st birthday with the Krewe that helped launch our group. The Pussyfooters were the first adult dance krewe to parade Mardi Gras since the Baby Dolls in the early 1900’s. The idea of adults dancing in the parades was such a hit that now there are over 50 groups.
The all-female Krewe of Muses is famous for the hand-crafted, elaborately glittered shoes they throw to the lucky few. Basketball legend, Swin Cash, served as queen. The night was long but we had a wonderful time dancing for thick crowds of enthusiastic people yelling words of encouragement to us.
Because the route has been shortened this year, all 3 of the evening’s parades were crowded into an area that allowed us to watch part of Knights of Chaos parade and the first 17 floats of Muses.
Tonight – 3 more parades and I’ll be back out on the route Sunday for my last parade of the season – Thoth.
