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).
