The 107th edition of the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club parade through New Orleans took place on Sunday May 15th 2016. It was too big for ropes. As the male Zulu members danced their way out of a variety of bars on St Bernard Avenue we noted that the men manning the ropes that keep onlookers at bay were missing.

And Zulu was big. Not Big 9 big by any stretch but big enough to include multiple floats and brass bands rolling through crowds that numbered deep into the thousands.
