2022 Fats Domino Second Line in New Orleans

New Orleans had the funerary second line for Fats Domino five years ago upon the passing of the old lion in October of 2017. Today’s parade, a decidely more low-key affair, was to celebrate the renaming of Caffin Avenue to Fats Domino Avenue.

A modest crowd was on hand as the 11am start time precluded most normal attendees from being there. There’s a reason the Sunday second lines start at 1pm. We need the extra time to shake off last night’s rough and rowdy ways.

Oh, and the multiple promised social aid and pleasure clubs? They must have not been told they were to be there. More’s the pity. The route was a mere one mile in length. Here are a few images we documented for the occasion.
