Krewe Des Bon Amis

The inaugural Bon Amis Ball was held in Milton in 1978 with King Crawdad James Pelletier and Queen Spanish Moss Jann Werner reigning. The Bon Amis Ball is a costumed affair with a contest theme selected by royalty. The gold spray-painted porcelain throne allows the King to rest and his staff are just some of the whimsies that Bon Amis brings to the night. The lighthearted and humor filled evening consists of great friends and good times.

These days, the Ball is held in Lafayette and still carries the traditions passed down from past royalty. This year’s royalty are Crawdad King Drew Cornell and Queen Spanish Moss Lecta Bourgeois who have chosen the theme “The Games We Play” for the costume contest.
