The Third Annual Krewe of Nyx Masquerade Ball was held Saturday at the Hilton Rivergate in the grand ballroom.
It was spectacular!
Last year,I attended as a sister-in-waiting.
This year I attended as a full-fledged member!
It’s a formal affair with tux, full-length gown and masks required.
To keep the blog post short, I’m going to let the pictures tell most of the story.
The event began at 7 pm. Navy Seal and I got there around 6:45 because I knew they’d have a lot of people checking in to enter the ballroom.
And man, did they ever! The krewe is now 1, 224 women strong and they were ready to party!
Waiting to check in.
Lovely centerpieces adorned each table
