Can't wait for Mardi Gras to come back? The Krewe of Nyx have heard your prayers and are here to grant your wish. Their first summer parade is set to roll on July 27th with a signature throw of glittered kid-sized plastic shovels.
“The Krewe of Nyx has consistently raised the bar,” Nyx Captain Julie Lea said in the release. “We think it is a great way to bring additional revenue and tourism to the city during the summer. A summer parade is a logical and fun bridge from one Mardi Gras season to the next.”
The 1970s-themed Krewe of Nyx Summer Parade will assemble at Elysian Fields, parade down Elysian Fields to North Peters, North Peters to Decatur, Decatur past Jackson Square to North Peters, North Peters to Canal, up Canal to Burgundy then U- turn, down Canal to Tchoupitoulas and Tchoupitoulas to Andrew Higgins.
I'm not sure about y'all, but I'm more than pumped for having some Mardi Gras back in my life 🙌🏼
