The Pussyfooters, an all-female parade and dance troupe, holds its annual Blush Ball Saturday. The event kicks off the Carnival season for the group and raises funds for the Metropolitan Center for Women and Children. The Pussyfooters typically march in several Carnival parades in their signature white and pink outfits, pink or magenta wigs and white Dr. Martens boots. Members will perform at the ball, and musical entertainment includes Big Sam's Funky Nation, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux and the Wild Magnolias and DJ Quickie Mart. There also are prizes and a raffle. In the past three years, the Blush Ball has raised more than $40,000 for the Metropolitan Center, says Pussyfooters member Larisa Gray. The Pussyfooters will march in the parades of the krewes of Muses, Nyx, Thoth and others. Ball tickets are $40 in advance (from members or at Fleurty Girl locations and Miss Claudia's Vintage Clothing & Costumes, 4204 Magazine St.), $45 online and at the door.
