Blackout & Gold Saints Second Line Parade

$12,442

196

There's no fan like a New Orleans Saints fan! As we mourn the untimely ending to the season, we also celebrate what lies ahead--our boys in black & gold will be back with a vengeance!

By fan request comes this official Blackout & Gold Saints Second Line parade, providing fans to mourn and celebrate in quintessentially New Orleans fashion. The parade, which like so many Blackout Sunday events, has received national media attention, with more to come. It will take place on "Blackout" Sunday, February 3, 2 pm, and the world will be watching.

Fans will gather at 1:30 pm on St. Peter St. at Jackson Square, and will parade from Decatur St. to St. Peter, right on Canal St. to Bourbon, right on Bourbon to Iberville, and will disband at 4 pm, where they can continue the celebration in the historic French Quarter or at additional Saints fan events. We will be led the 2018 Nola Big Easy Award Winners – Brass Band of the Year, T.B.C. Brass Band, joined by this year’s Grammy Award nominated ChaWa, plus Saints Super Fans, Mardi Gras Indians and more. Bring  your umbrellas and hankies, come in costume and let's show the world that our spirit is undefeatable. 

Participation in this fan based, grass roots effort is free, made possible by you, the generous Saints Fan Nation! 

Your support will help cover event permit fees, extensive police detail, the two award-winning marching bands, the trolley and driver, printing and promotional efforts. If the fundraising goal is met, a  minimum of $2,000 in donations will be provided to a beloved New Orleans foundation and the Save Our Brass Culture Foundation. Additionally, 100% of all fundraising beyond the $12,000 goal will be donated. 

Sponsors need not be present to receive gifts. Will ship free after the event! 

The Blackout & Gold Saints Second Line Parade WILL proceed even if the Kickstarter goal isn't met. Unfortunately, all donations will be forfeited, but as the event organizer, I pledge to fully cover the costs--I won't let you down. I still have faith that the Saints Nation will step up and show support of this massive Second Line event, the parade that so many desperately requested. I still believe....

Risks and challenges

Parade is pedestrian only, and participants agree to walk at their own risk. in order to ensure permit compliance, no motorized vehicles, bands, vendors or tents are allowed other than the entertainment officially contracted by the event producer. Participants may come in costume if desired--please ensure that costumes don't pose risks, i.e. no blindfolded walking (no matter how appropriate such may seem.)
