New NOLA Second Line season starts Sunday

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO)– We generally don’t need much of a reason have a parade in these parts, but the new weekly Social Aid & Pleasure Club parade schedule is out, and now you can plan for the party!

The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation‘s Norman Dixon Sr. Fund helps to underwrite the costs of permits, and along with the NOPD’s traffic division, we get an annual schedule of the (almost) weekly celebrations. Here’s the new lineup:
