The King’s Ball, originally held to celebrate twelfth-night, is another early French settler tradition that dates back over 250 years. Held on the first Saturday in February at the VFW Hall on Memorial Drive, attendees are encouraged to dress in French Colonial attire and participate in traditional music and dance.

Some guests dress their tables with candelabra, tablecloths, wine and food so dancers can “nibble their way around the hall and visit.” Don’t miss this “French” Mardis Gras in Missouri!
