Founded in 2000, Pygmalion takes its name from the Greek legend of a Cypress king who sculpted a statue of the sea nymph Galatea. So real and beautiful was the statue to Pygmalion, he fell helplessly in love with it and spent the rest of his life adoring it.
The Krewe of Pygmalion was founded by a group of Carnival veterans to provide a high-quality parade for the first week of the season. This organization is formed by 250 male and female riders.
The krewe's theme this year is "A Few Of Our Favorite Songs. They'll be throwing doubloons, beads and bracelets.
The party doesn’t stop after the parade!
The Krewe of Pygmalion is hosting their annual after-parade party at the Sugar Mill in New Orleans, Louisiana.
This year’s main act will be none other than the American hip-hop trio, Salt-N-Pepa! Don’t miss your chance to party into the early morning dancing to those 90s favorites.
Tickets are $125 per person (includes food and liquor).
