Muses has become a community force since its founding in 2000. It now boasts more than 1,000 members. Named for the nine daughters of Zeus, the krewe has become known for its flair and creativity, often including a satirical theme, and incredibly creative logo throws. That includes the ladies’ shoes painted and decorated by krewe members and gently tossed from floats to a lucky few. Look for the many walking clubs in the parade. Muses also prides itself on its community involvement (including hosting an annual contest to have a local student design the artwork for its cups.) This year, in addition to its long list of clever throws and clever float titles, the krewe will again feature its signature floats: the famous fiber-optic red shoe float, the Sirens float and the bathtub float.
