Dance of Decadence

Photo Recap of 2017 Southern Decadence Parade



Southern Decadence is winding down after a long weekend of glitter, sweat, and costumes both elaborately glamorous and sinfully scantily-clad. Photographer Brandon Robert was on scene to document the celebration's main event, the annual Southern Decadence Parade through the French Quarter. 

 


Second Line Alert: Original Big Seven


It’s Mother’s Day which means that the Original Big Seven are ready to step out. The popular Social Aid & Pleasure Club will be hosting their 21st annual second line on Sunday (5.14).


Second Line Alert: Ole & Nu Style Fellas


It’s Sunday and second line season is in full swing. Today the Ole & Nu Style Fellas will take to the streets to strut their stuff for their 19th annual outing. Full details follow.


Second Line Alert: Single Ladies Social Aid & Pleasure Club


All the Single Ladies will be strutting their stuff this afternoon for their 20th annual second line. For those looking for a respite from French Quarter festing, the Single Ladies Social Aid & Pleasure Club are ready for their annual parade through Central City.


Second Line Alert: Bayou Steppers


Get set for the rare Mid-City second line today. The New Orleans Bayou Steppers Social Aid & Pleasure Club are ready to strut in their Supa Sunday on the Bayou this afternoon (4.2).


Second Line Alert: Single Men


Today, Super Sunday festivities are kicking off at A.L. Davis Park. All the Mardi Gras Indians will be out today, but that does not mean that second lines are stopping. Today (3.19), the Single Men Social Aid & Pleasure Club is ready to strut. The parade will mark the group's 22nd anniversary. 


Parade Planner: Downtown Irish Club & Jim Monaghan's Parade


With St. Joseph's Day and Super Sunday coming up this weekend, following a week filled with Irish events, it's easy to forget that today is the main day for celebrations. Today (3.17) is actually St. Patrick's Day. The skies are clear today, and two of the biggest parades of the holiday are set to roll around town distributing potatoes, beads, and brews. There will be a few gaelic get-downs at block parties around Uptown. Full details and routes follow. 


Suit Up for Super Sunday

Details & Routes to See Mardi Gras Indians



Mardi Gras Indians only don their suits three times a year. The first is obviously Mardi Gras, the second is St. Joseph’s Day, and the third is a massive meeting of the tribes known as Super Sunday. This year, St. Joseph’s Day coincides with the annual event held by the Mardi Gras Indian Council on the third Sunday of March, so expect celebrations to be bigger and better than ever for 2017. 


Second Line Alert: Kids Nation & Keep N It Real


Don't let the clouds fool you — today is the perfect day for a second line. There are two lined up today, with the Kids Nation and the Keep N It Real Social Aide & Pleasure Clubs set to parade through the 6th and 7th Wards that begins by the banks of Bayou St. John.  


Parade Planner: Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day Parade


The skies are overcast today, but that will not stop the Irish Channel from celebrating their namesake St. Patrick's Day parade. So, get ready to catch yourself a stew and pull up those green leggings. Full route and details follow.
