Southern Decadence continues today. I didn’t know much about how Decadence came to be until I read this informative article in the Gambit. The big parade is gearing up right now in the French Quarter. The starting point is somewhere near the Golden Lantern and it ends somewhere in the vicinity of the Bourbon Pub–pretty much head to the lower end of Bourbon Street and you’re bound to run into a couple hundred thousand revelers. The Grand Marshals this year are Julien Artressia and Toby LeFort.
