To celebrate the 300th Anniversary of the City of New Orleans, NOLA Fest brought a New Orleans second line parade and street party to the heart of London for Make Music Day UK, 21 June, 2018.
The parade rolled through the streets of the London Bridge area, Hay's Galleria, along the river past the HMS Belfast, to The Scoop for a mass brass band performance, followed by an open-air New Orleans music jam in Potters Fields Park.
Thank you to all who helped make the parade possible.
