Pygmalion

  • Dates: 02/23/2019
  • Time: 6:45 PM
  • Price: Free

Founded in 2000 by a group of Carnival veterans who professed the wish to strengthen the quality of parades scheduled for the first weekend of the Carnival parade season in New Orleans, this club chose as its namesake Pygmalion, the king of Cyprus in Greek mythology. Pygmalion fell in love with his own statue of the sea nymph Galatea. The male and female group paraded on the Mid-City/downtown parade route for its first two years.
