Second Line Sunday in Treme, Algiers


The NOLA holiday weekend closes out strong Sunday, as second lines take it to both banks. In Treme, the Dumaine Street Gang traverses the avenues, from Claiborne to St. Bernard to St. Claude to A.P Tureaud. In Algiers, the Westbank Steppers crown boxing champ Roy Jones., Jr., as king. Click through for more details and maps:

 

DUMAINE STREET GANG

The Dumaine Street gang steps off from the Treme Center (N. Villere and St. Philip St.) at noon, with a route that pays homage to their fellow Social Aide and Pleasure Clubs in the 6th and 7th Wards. In case you weren't ready to get down, as this year's theme is "Knockin' Boots."

 

This year's king is Leo Lewis, and the queen is Lisa Robinson.

 

Here's the full route, in map and text form:
