All Saints Day Parade in New Orleans
The Backstreet Cultural Museum celebrated its grand opening on November 1, 1999 — All Saints Day — with a mock jazz funeral. Complete with a brass band, horse-drawn carriage, and grand marshals, the parade moved through the streets of the Faubourg Tremé. The anniversary parade has since become a museum tradition, held each year on All Saints Day, and in honor of a beloved member of the community who has passed on. This event signals the museum’s commitment to raise awareness of the New Orleans’ jazz funeral tradition.
The museum encourages folks to wear their memorial T-shirts dedicated to their late loved ones and friends.Read More at Backstreet Museum
