  • The newly renovated gae-tana's clothing boutique hosts a three-day grand reopening celebration.

Longtime Uptown women's clothing boutique gae-tana's (7732 Maple St., 504-865-9625; www.gaetanas.com) reopens at 10 a.m. today after being closed more than three months to repair damage from a one-alarm fire May 19.

Williams Plum Street Snowballs will serve its specialty from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Jewelry artist Suzanne Lossi will be in the store Friday and Saturday, and artist Grant Nelson will paint a canvas on site from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

A highlight of the celebration Saturday is a second-line parade with a brass band. The public is invited to join in as the procession makes its way from Bruno's Tavern (7538 Maple St.) to gae-tana's. The second line starts at 12:30 p.m.

Renovation of the building includes wood reclaimed from the original shop, which has been open for three decades, made into shelves and other display items. The shop's merchandise will remain a variety of classic and trendy apparel, shoes, jewelry, handbags and other accessories.
