Southern Decadence does Decatur

While we had no “official” events listed on any of the “official” Southern Decadence sites, there were plenty of attendees roaming about the Lower Decatur neighborhood this weekend.

These guys were seen on thier way to the real official parade Sunday. They headed the whole sheebang up with their wonderful banner that sports this years theme, “Rebitrh”, in giant faux ceramic street tiles. Some folks say they were lost, but I’d like to believe that they wanted to show the LD some love.

Memorial Service for Katrina Animals

The Louisiana SPCA, the New Orleans Musicians Clinic and St. Anna’s Episcopal Church sponsor a jazz funeral march, interfaith service and reception to honor lost pets and celebrate the bonds that unite people and their animals. The march begins at Esplanade Avenue and Decatur Street, 5 Sun., proceeds to St. Anna’s at 1313 Esplanade Ave., with music by the Treme Brass Band and the Storyville Stompers. The public is invited to bring photos or remembrances of their pets but are requested not to bring animals. Call 415-3514 or 368-5191, ext. 202.
