It’s still Carnival Season – even without parades rolling – and the Krewe of Muses is responding to these times with community engagement programming to help those who have supported the Krewe throughout its 20-year history.
Krewe of Muses Captain Staci Rosenberg announced that two of the krewe’s 2021 community programs will focus on supporting businesses located along the parade route and recognizing healthcare warriors.
The Muses glitter shoe lottery Stilotto! runs January 20th to February 10th and encourages people to patronize businesses that are already hurting due to COVID. More than forty businesses are participating.
Muses is also proud to honor healthcare workers. The Muses Heels for Healers program will gift coveted glitter shoes to nurses, doctors, and hospital support staff who are working so hard during the pandemic.
Rosenberg said, “We recognize the huge impact that COVID-19 has had on the City’s economy and Mardi Gras. Our krewe is encouraging people to visit local businesses to play Stilotto. This is a devastating time for businesses, some earning 50% of their annual income during Mardi Gras. And of course, during the pandemic, we have been glittering our popular Muses shoes to ensure there are plenty to share with our courageous and committed healthcare warriors.”
Only a Lucky Few Will Win a Rare 2021 Muses Shoe Even Though the Parade is Canceled!
Here’s how to play:
Stilotto runs from January 20th to February 10th.

You can enter once per day at each business. Note: If you enter more than once per day at a business, the computer will discard the extra entries. Maximum prize of three shoes per winner.
Each participating business will have one Stilotto winner. Winners will receive a coveted Muses glitter shoe. The more businesses you visit each day, the better your chances!
Muses will draw the winners on Muses tHERsday – February, 11th. Winners will be announced on this website and will receive a notification email.
All shoes must be picked up at a socially distant drive-by at the Muses Den (address to be provided later) between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 14th.
