First up for my Mardi Gras parades: Nyx 7 p.m., Wednesday - February 15th 2012 Location: Uptown Theme: announced day of parade Floats: 20 Throws: boas, cups, headbands, doubloons, light-up rings
The all-female Krewe of Nyx makes its Carnival debut. Nyx is the Greek goddess of the night. WWL -television anchor Karen Swensen serves as grand marshal, and marching groups include the NOLA Cherry Bombs, Roux La La and a tricycle group. There will be a band competition, with the winner announced at the end of the parade. Throws include hand-decorated items *SECRET* I heard from a NYX rider that the hand-decorated items will be personally decorated purses . . . similar to the Muses shoes!!!
