Each year the Krewe stages a full-dress, traditional tableau Ball at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner, LA.,to which the public is invited. Our Ball is complete with an eleven piece live orchestra under the direction B. J. Perez All court and Krewe members are costumed. Since 1989 we have had professionally-sewn costumes for Court and Krewe. In 2006 we changed our Krewe costumes.
Many of the backstage duties at the Ball are assigned to past members that have grown up with the Krewe.
We have several members who are second generation Little Rascals.
Our founder and Co-Captain, Mr. Jack G. Spittler, Sr., narrates and tells the story of our theme.
