Farewell, Fats: Photos From Fats Domino’s Second Line Celebration

On Wednesday, November 1 (All Saints’ Day), thousands of adoring fans gathered at Vaughan’s Lounge in the Bywater to kick off Fats Domino’s second line celebration. Many opted to wear the color to represent songs like “Blueberry Hill” and “Blue Monday,” but the sentiment was anything but the blues. Check out photos by Kim Welsh (by clicking on the image below), who captured paraders, colorful characters, Dr. John and others who showed up for the Fat Man.
