Metairie Mardi Gras Parade Schedule 2014

Krewe of Little Rascals

The Krewe of Little Rascals Parade annually rolls along Veterans Boulevard from Clearview Shopping Center to the end at Martin Behrman. The Krewe's approximately four mile Parade makes no turns in Severn or Bonnabel.

Led by the Sheriff’s vehicles and our KLR Pace Car, the Parade travels the traditional Metairie Parade Route. We include our Captains, Royalty and Krewe on full-sized McKinley Cantrell floats. Everyone riding is strapped on. All members throw to the crowds lining the street.

A Special Feature is the Owens Sausage Company Horse Hitch, from Richardson, Texas. They are exclusive to the Little Rascals Parade.

The Jerusalem Temple and Farhad Grotto Shriners are a beloved part of our production, along with several horse riding clubs, car clubs, and several radio station vans and special vehicles. Many schools from the Metro Area participate along with dancing schools, military bands and floats, Jimmy’s Kids and a taekwondo club. When available, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile rides with us.

To children in the Metro Area, there is no greater thrill than being on a Mardi Gras float, throwing to crowds who are yelling, “Throw me something”

About the Book
Never before has the history of the Mardi Gras celebration been looked at this way. Errol Laborde focuses on the first 60 years of the organized celebration in New Orleans, a period that bridges the premiere parade of the Mistick Krewe of Comus and the founding of the Zulu organization. Along the way he discovers fascinating characters; including a poetic journalist who survived a bloody attack, an archduke looking for fun and a would-be king finding religion. Laborde also links an African War with Custer¹s Last Stand and disproves some of the conventional wisdom about Carnival¹s early history. This is the most important contemporary book on early Carnival history. And it fun to read too.
