VIP Ladies feature Peace Clubs

Date: Sat, Mar. 20, 2010

Come out on Sunday to enjoy the annual VIP Ladies and Kids second-line parade, and support SilenceIsViolence Peace Club members from Booker T. Washington High School, who are featured guests in the parade! The students have been working for months with the Black Forest Fancies to create a beautiful float that they will pull at the front of the parade.

Sunday's parade begins at 12:30pm and ends at 4pm. Below is the complete route. Congratulations to Allison Goodman and the Black Forest Fancies for creating this exciting opportunity, and thanks to the VIP Ladies and Kids for being our gracious hosts!
