Mardi Gras {I love Muses Shoes}

The Krewe of Muses parade is always one of my favorites, and this year's show was one of the best yet. With the theme, Dr. Muess on the Loose - Oh What a Parade We'll Throw!, the floats depicted Dr. Suess stories with a twist.

Thanks BFF Lori for the amazing photos.

Organized in 2000, the Krewe of Muses is named after the legendary daughters of Zeus. In Greek mythology, muses were patrons of the arts and sciences, as well as sources of inspiration for artists, poets, philosophers, and musicians.
The parade has become one of Mardi Gras' favorites, thanks to its humorous and biting parade themes. Each year, in addition to their year-long philanthropic works, the Muses host a design contest for students in the area. The winner rides as a guest of the krewe and his or her design is turned into a throw cup!
In addition to allowing students to design their throw cup logos, they also have had children design their masks. Now those duties have been passed along to adults, such as senior citizens and other adults in rehabilitative environments that may have not been able to participate in the parade as parade goers.

I was lucky enough to score 7 glittered Muses shoes. Thanks Rachael, Tania, Molly, Michelle, Shon, Sara..... I appreciate them all.
