Parade Video: Krewe of Druids and Mystic Krewe Of Nyx
The threat of rain did not keep revelers away from the parade route on Wednesday night (2/27/2019). We were right there for you. Check out some of our parade videos.
Mystic Krewe Of Nyx
The Krewe of Nyx in New Orleans has earned the honor of being the biggest Mardi Gras parade in history. With over 3300 riders, the all-female krewe has broken barriers for the Super Krewes and has raised the bar for parades everywhere. The Krewe’s signature throw are decorated purses. 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.
