In 2000, the Krewe of Pygmalion was founded by a group of Carnival veterans intent on providing a high-quality parade for the first week of the season. In Greek mythology, Pygmalion was 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.

After the parade, the fun continues at their annual party: Pygmalionfest.

  • Year founded:  2000
  • Membership:  550 male and female riders
  • Number of floats: 25 floats
