This is what a second line parade is about.
I’m not sure what more there is to say.
Except to explain. There is no one way, no right way or rules about running a second line parade. Just a few traditions. And, rituals. The tuba player starts it. Usually, if there are children walking they come out first. Usually, they are dressed in their Sunday best. Matching suits. Matching ties. Matching shoes. And, hats. However… sometimes, they come out dressed casually and change into their Sunday clothes at the first stop. The social aid clubs do that too.
For spectators it’s hard to know when. The best thing you can do is walk the entire parade route if you want to see all the changes. On a hot and humid day that can be grueling. Just imagine how the guy playing the tuba or the bass drum feels. Not only does he walk, but he plays. In tune and on time.
In tune and on time.
