Katrina 10 Commemorative Parade and Block Party

This is a past event

The Foundation for Louisiana hosts a second-line parade and block party to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

As many New Orleanians look back on the past decade, the Foundation for Louisiana will lead two second-line parades that will culminate with a public block party outside of Ashé Cultural Arts Center.

One parade line will start at 5:15 pm at Booker T. Washington High School (1201 S. Roman Street). Another will start at 5:30 pm at Louis Armstrong Park (on the corner of Basin Street and St. Peter Street). The two parades will converge at Charity Hospital and stop at the Smoothie King Center for the K10 Power of Community event before dropping off all participants at Ashé Cultural Arts Center for a celebratory block party.

Community groups including social aid and pleasure clubs and Mardi Gras Indian tribes will participate in the two second-line parades, and the block party will feature live music and a selection of local food vendors.

This parade and block party are open to the public. Transportation will be available from the block party to the Smoothie King Center.
