Mystic Krewe of Nyx {Mardi Gras 2013}


Last night, two parades rolled on the traditional Uptown route, the Krewes of Druids & Nyx.

In its second year of parading, the Mystic Krewe of Nyx is quickly becoming a favorite parade. Rolling the Wednesday night prior to Mardi Gras, Nyx is an all-female krewe.


Nyx (nicks) was the goddess of night. Her name, synonymous with Night, describes how her dark light falls from the stars, and she dictates to men and also to the gods. Not even Zeus wanted to upset Nyx, as the stories go. She was one of the most powerful goddesses to be talked about in Greek mythology.”


The signature throw is a glittered purse. This year, I was happy to “catch” three.

Thanks Nancy, Jennifer, & Erin!

Nyx members also throw a wide array of signature throws. Look how cool these are.
