Feel like becoming a part of a real Mardi Gras tradition? The Blanc et Noir -- or black and white -- Marching Society is your chance.
It's a New Orleans-style Second Line group of marchers who lead the Highland Parade. Last year, 50 members took part by dressing up and marching the 3.9 mile parade route.
To take part, you'll need to contact group organizers through their Facebook page. Then, show up at Marilynn's Place on Fern Avenue before 2 P.M. Sunday, February 10th.
Organizer, Marion Marks, describes the historic importance of the second line.
"You will see that marching societies are really some of the oldest forms of participation and having a brass ensemble playing good jazz music and Mardi Gras music always adds to the festivities," said Marks.
Participants are asked to wear black and white costumes, and show up early to have their faces painted red.
