NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The Krewe of Pygmalion starts on Saturday, Jan. 30 at 6:15 p.m. in Uptown New Orleans.

It follows the traditional Uptown parade route, starting at the intersection of Jefferson Ave. and Magazine St. From there, the parade rolls to Napoleon Ave. and makes a left.

Once it reaches St. Charles Ave., the parade makes a right and heads all the way past Lee Circle to Canal St.

The krewe makes a U-turn at Burgundy St., heads back down Canal St., and then makes a right on Tchoupitoulas St., ending at Poydras St.

The Krewe of Pygmalion is a New Orleans Carnival Club founded in 2000 by a group of Carnival veterans who wanted to provide a high-quality parade for the first week of the Mardi Gras Season.

Our organization consists of male and female riders. If you want to ride in a very affordable, high-quality parade, then come ride with the Krewe of Pygmalion.

The Krewe of Pygmalion takes its name from the Greek legend of 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.

    Today's work was much lighter between the Saints and Chargers was much lighter. They wore no pads only shells and helmets, and they only practiced two hours instead of two and a half like Thursday. While they certainly weren't perfect, overall the Saints had much better execution today than Thursday.  "I thought overall it was a little bit crisper today than yesterday.
