In the new New Orleans, it seems people can't get enough parades or burlesque, and the two public displays are merging in a National Underwear Day parade, announced by organizers Ryan Ballard of the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus and Xena Zeit-Geist, founder of the Society of Sin burlesque troupe. 

The parade is Friday, Aug. 5. There's a pre-party and gathering in Washington Square in Marigny at 6 p.m. The procession departs at 7 p.m. and travels to Castillo Blanco, the Chewbacchus den, where the group will hold its "Free Ball." Organizers have named royalty for the day. Chris Leonard, Executive Director of New Orleans Pride, is the King. Burlesque performer Trixie Minx is Queen. Admission to both events is free.

Monday: Second Line for Prince RIP

Posted By on Mon, Apr 25, 2016 at 10:52 AM

Prince "Purple Rain" Second Line & celebration of the Purple One's life

The passing of one of the greatest musicians in U.S. history, Prince Rogers Nelson, has rocked music lovers worldwide. Cities across the country are lighting up their iconic buildings and bridges in the color purple to honor his royal badness with his favorite color, the color most often associated with royalty and nobility. Prince, as he was aptly named, was the closest thing our country has ever had to royalty. And in keeping with our city’s beloved tradition, we will honor his Purple Majesty with a second line parade today/Monday at 6 p.m.

And be forewarned: if Michael Jackson’s second line in 2009, which saw several thousand revelers, is any indication of size and energy, this parade will no doubt be one of the largest this city has ever hosted. Over 1,500 people have already RSVP’d ‘Yes’ to the FB invite posted by MusicSynergy504 which is organizing the parade.
