Willcore has posted some amazing scans on Prosthetically Hip of the invitation to the Rex Grand Ball that he received this year. These are amazing symbols of the beauty and history of the old-line Krewes. This is the first year that the Rex Ball will not be held in the Municipal Auditorium since 1930, due to flooding. Instead the Ball is being held at the Sheraton on Canal St. The traditional meeting of the courts between Comus and Rex will take place in a ballroom at the Mariott. Rex will more than likely walk down Canal St. to meet Comus, a sight that I may try to make it out to see.
