The "second line" refers to the people that fall in behind a parade, dancing to the music, waving banners and twirling parasols. This tradition began post-Civil War with the now-famous Jazz Funeral of New Orleans, and today it fills the streets of the French Quarter regularly, is part of wedding celebrations, and has spread from its roots across the nation. Join the “second-lining” fun with a personally-designed parasol!
