Last night, crowds enjoyed one of the most spectacular parades on the route. Muses impressed Carnival goers with their unique throws and light shows, and some even left the route with sparkly shoes. If you missed any of Babylon, Chaos, or Muses, click through for a recap.

If you had to miss the parades for any reason, you can still get a glimpse of all the floats, marching krewes, bands, and people on the route. Click for photos.
