Local All-Female Mardi Gras Krewe Opens Membership

If you’ve always wanted to be in an all-female Mardi Gras krewe but missed your chance to join Muses or Nyx, the Krewe of Pandora wants you.  The Metairie-based krewe is now taking membership applications for ladies 21 years and older.

Mardi Gras 2016 was the inaugural year for this squad, and they are looking for more ladies to join in on the fun.

“Pandora is the finale parade of a spectacular triple header on Sunday, Feb. 11 with the Krewe of Napoleon at 4:30 p.m. followed by Athena at 5:30 p.m., and Pandora to close out the day, rolling at 6:30 p.m.,” Pandora captain Julie Lea said.

Members get to wear the Krewe’s signature colors of Tiffany blue and black and create hand-decorated boxes as the signature throw.

The krewe is currently running an early bird special available to new members who join before October 1.  The special gives new applicants a savings of $50.  For more information on how to join visit their website.
