The Fiesta Krewe Ball on is a gala affair and part of the annual Fiesta of Five Flags celebration. It honors the Mardi Gras and Fiesta monarchs as they, in turn, honor DeLuna and his Court at the Hadji Shrine Temple. The festivities will include live music, krewe skits, as well as a presentation of krewe royalty.

The ball includes a competition to win the table decorating contest and the coveted Fiesta Krewe Ball trophy. Cash prizes are also awarded to the top five krewe tables.

The 2009 ball will take place on Wednesday, June 10 at 7:30 p.m. Musical entertainment will be provided by the Reunion Band. Attendees may wear cocktail attire or their krewe costume. All drinks are $2 at the cash bar. Tickets are $25 per person, and they must be purchased in advance from the Fiesta of Five Flags office.
