Parade Pics: Krewes of Nyx, Ancient Druids Offer Carnival Cookin'


The rain cleared out Wednesday night, leaving room for a pair of parades to process down St. Charles that heralded the final countdown to Mardi Gras. Photographer Daniel Paschall was on hand to capture the Krewe of Ancient Druids and the Krewe of Nyx. Check out the pictures:

 

KREWE OF ANCIENT DRUIDS

Made up of Carnival enthusiasts that wanted to see a parade on the Wednesday before Fat Tuesday, the Krewe of Ancient Druids offered a satirical smorgasboard of "Druids Delicacies" on Wednesday. The name of their king, the Archdruid, was kept secret, as per tradition.

 

 

KREWE OF NYX

The all-female Krewe of Nyx took their third ride down St. Charles Ave., showering their onlookers with purses, light-up rings, aprons and more. This year's theme was "Nyx Gets Cookin'." The Grand Marshal was Chef Susan Spicer, and Goddess Nyx III was Heather Hanlon Nichols
