The Krewe of Muses did not disappoint this Mardi Gras, handing out thousands of hand-decorated shoes on a glorious Thursday night.

  • WDSU chief meteorologist Margaret Orr, who will retire this year, was the honorary Muse of the all-female krewe.

Earlier in the night, the Knights of Babylon and the satirical Knights of Chaos rolled Uptown.

Satirical floats: Muses' theme this year was "Museapalooza" with satirical takes on festivals, such as "Dumpster Fyre Fest," "New Orleans Whine and Mood Experience," "Rich-boy Fest," "Fails of the Cocktail" and "Buy-You Boogaloo."
