"Walking Clubs" appear on Mardi Gras Day in New Orleans about 7:00 am. They march in the Uptown area and then turn onto St. Charles Avenue and proceed downtown. These are predominantly white male organizations. The Jefferson City Buzzards (named for a section of Uptown once called Jefferson City) began in 1890 and the Lyons Carnival Club began in 1946.
Thank you, Tiff!
What an elaborate production of Balinese traditional arts performances. It's exciting to read about the event you've documented. I'll be sure to forward this link to others.
