METAIRIE, LA – Members of the Mystic Krewe of Nyx will parade now on Sunday.
It was announced on Friday that around 200 members of the Mystic Krewe of Nyx will now ride in Metairie’s Krewe of Pandora.
Three additional floats will be added to Pandora. It is unclear if these three floats are Nyx or Pandora floats, as both krewes rent their floats from the same place.
The Krewe of Pandora is set to roll on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. in Metairie, immediately following the Krewe of Athena. Pandora will use the Metairie Westbound route, beginning at the intersection of Bonnabel Blvd. and Nero Street.
Nyx founder and Captain Julie Lea is also the founder and Captain of Pandora. From a press release, “Julie is declining all interview requests. This has been a very difficult time for her, the Float Lieutenants and the Krewe. Thank you for your patience, understanding and interest over the past few days.”
