The Krewe of Little Rascals is one of the best parades for kids because it is composed of kid Krewe members. The parade takes place on Sunday, February 9, 2019 at noon in Metairie. There are 14-20 floats filled with kids and their parent helpers, horses with riders, dance teams, and of course bands. The parade is located in Metairie which makes parking a lot easier than some of the uptown parades. This also means that when you decide to leave the parade, even during the parade, it is a lot easier to get home.
The Krewe of Little Rascals parades starts at the corner of El Dorado Street and Woodlawn Avenue in Metairie. The parade heads down Veterans Memorial Boulevard and ends at the intersection of Martin Behrman Avenue and Veterans.
