New Orleans Mardi Gras Walking Clubs February 28, 2017

 "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.
