The mystique and masquerade of Mardi Gras day filled with history and excitement, had always been the most favorite holiday of the year for the three. The ladies rode in parades and enjoyed the Ball Masques and parties that accompanied them, but something was always missing.
The feeling of unity and originality was somewhat lacking. So the ladies decided to create their own Mardi Gras organization and the Mystic Krewe of Nyx was born.
It's a tradition in Mardi Gras that the names of the Krewes are usually after Gods or Goddesses in Greek or Roman mythology. Nyx was the Greek Goddess of night. The three knew they wanted to parade at night and be the goddesses of the streets of New Orleans during their ride.
Bringing together women of diverse backgrounds and enhancing the spirit of Mardi Gras for the community is the vision for the Krewe. Embracing a little bit of tradition, with a twist of new and fun ideas, is what makes the Krewe of Nyx so special. All women are goddesses no matter what age they are. Every woman deserves to be adored, respected, and made to feel beautiful.
Show off your inner goddess while having the time of your life.
