Muses Shoe Float

Since their first parade in 2001, the ladies of Muses have made the shoe their symbol. Their huge, fiber optic shoe float has become one of their signatures, and each year it carries the krewe's honored guest or honorary muses, as it did actress Becky Allen, in this photo from 2004. Muses shook up Carnival when it hit the scene in 2000, with a parade organized by ladies who aren't afraid to be bold and original. Just one look at the huge high heeled shoe coming down the street, and you get the message.
