Chip Off the Old Ceiling: All-Female YeMaYa Parade Marches First on Saturday
In late winter, parading women show off their glittery shoes to stand out among the boys' clubs on St. Charles. But, this year, the Fall second line schedule will gain its own female sanctuary under the crown. Declaring Every Woman a Queen - just as the Queenfish would like it - the YeMaYa marching parade steps off at 6 p.m. Saturday night from Buffa's Lounge for a sashay through Treme and the French Quarter. The brain-daughter of parade organizing guru Ann Marie Coviello, YeMaYa has brought in no less than 13 female marching clubs, a couple bands a choir for their first romp. To make extra sure we know who's boss, all the participants will be wearing crowns.
