It was hotter than fish grease at Sunday’s parade but that didn’t stop a soul from the second line community from coming out to have a good ole shakedown time. Lots of "Happy New Years!" exchanges between folks who hadn’t seen each other since June when we disbanded for the summer. Young Pinstripes set it off and the Valley of Silent Men did a splendid job as always - their ranks appear fluffier than in recent years which is a good thing. Lotta other second line clubs participated this year too including Sundan and the Divine Ladies. Second Line season is officially off and running my people.
