2019 Southern Decadence Festival & Grand Marshall Parade in Photos

The 48th annual Southern Decadence Festival and Grand Marshall Parade were in full bloom Labor Day weekend (August 29-September 2, 2019).

The Grand Marshall Parade was led by Countess C. Alice, William Antill and actor/celebrity spokesman Jeff Goldblum. The parade rolled under the theme “Fruit Salad: Come Toss A Good Time” and were adorned in polka dots and pinstripes. A bevy of marching/dancing krewes delivered big thrills despite ravaging heat and lingering rain in the area.

Marching/Dancing Krewes included many of the cities favorites and brightest including:

The Rolling Elvi, The Organ Grinders, Camel Toe Lady Steppers, The Pussyfooters, The Merry Antoinettes, Flaming Flagettes, The Cherry Turnovers, Krewe of Spank, The Muff-a-Lottas, The New Orleans Pups and Handlers Association, The Disco Amigos, Cosmonaughties, Lucha Krewe and many more.
