Among the many activities corporate event professional can do to celebrate a special event, or just get together as a team, there’s truly nothing like riding on a float n a Mardi Gras parade — which can be quite a thrill with the Krewe of Pandora! If you wish to improve the relationship of your employees and keep them motivated, planning a good corporate event may be the perfect solution.
Successful corporate events require a delicate balance between interactive, productive, and fun and we should tell you that we put the “p” in party! Mardi Gras is pure sensory overload, and certainly there is no attraction that defines this celebration better than its parades. Honoring the festivals mystique by being in decked out in masks and costumes while riding on a float is exactly what makes being being a part of Pandora extra special. We all know what an unengaging event looks like: droning speakers, staff members checking their watches, people dozing off in their folding chairs, but riding in our float will be nothing like this. The tossing of throws, returned fun smiles, shout-outs, and blown kisses are all what makes Interacting with Mardi Gras revalers nothing less than exhilarating and the perfect team building event for your staff. If the goal is to teach new skills among your staff of professionals, then experiencing Mardi Gras with Pandora is an interactive activity that can strengthen your team.
Traditions were always fun to keep, and riding our float will help you boost employee morale and productivity. For any business, employee morale is an extremely significant aspect because the truth is, it can either make or break your organization. Not only will riding our floats make for super excited and happy employees, but it will also attract potentially new clients and customers, but so too are fellow sponsors and vendors! You can form new business partnerships on our floats and meet other like-minded individuals in complementary businesses while riding on our floats at one of the biggest street parties in the nation. We promise to ensure your staff a party that’s packed with fun and comfortable for everyone!

Pandora Parade Rolls Sunday, March 3, 2019.
The Krewe of Pandora is now taking membership applications as it prepares for its third ride in Metairie, Louisiana on Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 6:30pm on the traditional Metairie parade route right outside of New Orleans. The Krewe is encouraging ladies ladies to “Join Online Now and Save $$$”. During its early bird discount offer. This Early Bird discount is available to new members who join on or before May 1st and includes $50.00 off membership dues.
The Krewe of Pandora invites all ladies 18 and over to visit the Krewe of Pandora website, www.kreweofpandora.org to learn more about the krewe and the upcoming season. “Pandora is bringing ladies together from all across the country to enjoy a fun and friendly Mardi Gras environment.” said Pandora Captain Julie Lea.
Bringing a new and fun all-female parading krewe to Jefferson Parish has been a joy for the members and the women have the opportunity to meet new friends. Pandora also offers special membership packages for corporate sponsors and large groups. Many companies who employ a large number of women are now using riding memberships as performance incentives for a job well done
Another advantage of the group memberships are for the ladies celebrating a huge milestone life event such as a bachelorette celebration, a birthday party, divorce party, or a bucket list item of things to do with their girlfriends. Groups of 6 or more ladies are eligible for the group riding package.
The Krewe of Pandora’s signature colors are Tiffany blue & black and are often used in the parade and when displaying their special hand decorated throws. The signature throw of decorated boxes are true treasures that Pandora members enjoy creating all year long. These one of a kind boxes are glittered then embellished with feathers, rhinestones, and other fun baubles which make them a true treasure. The riders of Pandora hand them out to the crowds as throws and show them off as keepsakes. Many recipients of these gorgeous boxes will display them in their homes or offices for many years to come.
Pandora’s parades in 2016 and 2018 were hugely successful as crowds competed to catch a glimpse of all the Krewe of Pandora has to offer. The ladies of Pandora are excited to prepare for its third parade in 2019 and want you to join them. If you’ve been looking to meet new people and to do something fun with your female family members, co-workers, or friends, this is it!
For more information about membership please visit www.kreweofpandora.org/join-us.
Watch as our members explain where some of their inspiration comes from and how a box can go from plain and boring to bejeweled and beautiful!
As you can see, much time thought and love goes into each box that is thrown from the floats. The members of the Krewe of Pandora are each allowed to bring 20 boxes on the float with them. To be considered an official krewe box, the end result must display the year and Pandora or KOP.
Some members choose to make a few extra boxes ahead of the parade in order to give to family and friends ahead of time. In a crowd of people, making sure your family or friends catch the box created just for them can be tough so boxes are given as gifts way ahead of time.
Each box created hopefully ends up on display on bookshelves in homes or on desks in offices. Everyone loves to talk about beauftiful Mardi Gras throws that were made just for them.
The Ladies of Pandora can’t wait to show you what they have already started working on for the 2019 parade. Some members have started their work very early this year and have posted pictures to the Krewe of Pandora’s Instagram account.
Even though the krewe colors are Tiffany blue and Black, members get to be creative with their boxes and ideas flow with beautiful glittered treasures.
You can be in that number with us, making beautiful jeweled boxes to throw your friends. Visit us for more information!
