In the infant stages, LUEY Weekend consisted of a small bar run by those eager to continue celebrating after Mardi Gras... Over the years, as word spread and the event grew in leaps and bounds, other local social clubs and charity organizations joined in hosting this event.
Many years later, the Houston Council of Clubs added the 'Show of Shows'. This event marks the closing of LUEY weekend and is held on Sunday afternoon. The 'Show of Shows' is put on by the member clubs and features a wide range of what can loosely be called (read; demented) "entertainment". It has delighted and mortified thousands upon thousands of participants over the years.
There has never been, and still is no registration fee for out of town guests. Local guests (Harris county and surrounding counties) are required to pay a $15 registration fee.
