Beaux Arts Krewe Ball returns, to mark 50th year

It’s a scene out of a 16th-century fairy tale.

The king, in an immense train, welcomes revelers to the annual ball while the community, dressed in brilliant reds and deep purples with gold accents, watches as young ladies in bright white gowns are presented to society by their fathers.

And while it sounds like fantasy, it is the scene that has both brought the community together to celebrate and support a cause for 50 years.
