Internationally recognized Krewe of Little Rascals is America’s longest running, most flamboyant children’s Mardi Gras Krewe in Carnival history. Its parade is on February 16, 2014 in Metairie, a suburb of New Orleans.

Founded in 1983, it was started by a couple who wanted the children to live and breathe the carnival spirit. The krewe's motto is “Today’s Little Rascals are Tomorrow’s Leaders and Our Hope for the Future”. Although it follows the pattern of adult clubs, it promotes its own values easy for kids to understand, such as leadership, self-esteem and fellowship.

At the parade's start, it only had three floats. Now it has between fourteen and twenty. As kids learn the aforementioned three values from the krewe, it i with hope that they themselves will come back as adults and instill the values in future generations and grow the krewe even bigger like the ones ran by adults for adults.
