ITALIAN AMERICAN MARCHING CLUB 1515 Poydras St., Suite 1400 New Orleans, La. 70112 (504) 561-1006 Email: info@italianamericanmarchingclub.org

New Orleans' St. Joseph's Day Parade, celebrating the close-knit Italian community that added such a distinct flavor to the Crescent City over 100 years ago. The 39th Annual St. Joseph's Parade will be on March 14, 2009. There will be floats and marchers dressed in black tuxedos, and the marching part of the parade will begin at Canal and Chartres at 6:00 p.m. Their walking route keeps them in the busier parts of the French Quarter for almost four hours, and they come prepared to throw beads, flowers and fava "lucky" beans the entire time. They also dance and sing with the bystanders.
