The Krewe of Little Rascals Parade annually rolls along Veterans Boulevard from Clearview Shopping Center to the end at Martin Behrman. Our approximately four-mile Parade makes no turns on Severn or Bonnabel. Led by the Sheriff’s vehicles and our KLR Pace Car, the Parade travels the traditional Metairie Parade Route on Veterans Blvd.
2017 King and Queen
Krewe on full-sized McKinley Cantrell double-decker floats.
Everyone riding is tethered on for safety. All members throw to the crowds lining the street.
These floats are joined by marching groups
bands, horseback riding groups, car clubs
and much more, totaling over 85+ units.
The Jerusalem Temple and Farhad Grotto Shriners and Bug Patrol are a beloved part of our production. along with several radio station vans and special vehicles.
Spectators line the parade route and hundreds of thousands watch as our family-oriented parade is aired on the Jefferson Parish website. Our parade on January 24, 2016 attracted a crowd of over 300,000+, three times as many people as the crowd who attend the Super Bowl.
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 Mister”!
