Each year the Krewe participates in activities in both sister cities.
In February or March (depending on the date of Fat Tuesday) individuals from Sioux City, IA travel to Lake Charles, LA to participate in their Mardi Gras activities. These activities usually consist of participating in a Chicken Run, riding in at least one parade, attending the Krewe of Illusions Ball, some sort of a community service event, and the block party on Fat Tuesday. Additionally there are various other get togethers and activities.
Photos from these events can be viewed in the Photo Gallery (link is on the left side of this page).

On July 2nd, WinnaVegas Casino Resort's Big Parade will head WEST this year on 4th Street from Iowa to Pierce and then head south to the Tyson Events Center! The parade will be televised once again on KTIV News Channel Four.
The Mardi Gras Festivale Costume Gala and Cajun buffet will follow the parade inside the Tyson Center. There will be an authentic Cajun sit-down dinner and handmade Mardi Gras costumes direct from Louisiana.
After the food and festivities, the party continues outside the Tyson Center, with FREE, live Zydeco music from the Louisiana based band, Zydecane! And the night wouldn't be complete without fireworks around 10pm!
