Riding for the first time in 2016, The Krewe of Pandora are “the Jewels of Jefferson Parish Mardi Gras.”

In Greek mythology, Pandora was the first mortal women created by the Gods. From Aphrodite, she received unparalleled beauty, grace and desire. Hermes gave her a cunning, deceitful mind and a crafty tongue. Athena taught her to be deft with her hands. Poseidon gave her a pearl necklace that would prevent her from drowning. Apollo taught her to sing and play the lyre. Zeus gave her a foolish, mischievous and idle nature. From Hera, she received curiosity.

This hot, all-female krewe rolls on the traditional Metairie parade route. Their motto is "Party with Pandora!" The krewe’s colors are Tiffany blue and black and their signature throw is a hand-glittered box (Pandora’s box – get it?). Their mission is to cultivate friendships between women from all walks of life.
