The Krewe named after the legendary Queen Of Egypt was the first all-female organization on the Uptown. The Krewe consists of 500 female riders.
Their motto is: "Her beauty is timeless, her age is now...forever!"
Their theme this year is "Strolling Down The Avenue." Keep an eye out for their medallion beads, head bands and other great throws.
