On Super Bowl Sunday in February, a defiant army of Who Dats boycotted the game, and instead drank, danced and commiserated their way through the French Quarter. The “Blackout & Gold Second Line Parade” was a tribute to the outstanding Saints season that ended in disappointment due to disgraceful NFL officiating during the NFC championship contest.

With a new Saints season about to begin, the organizer of the “Blackout & Gold” parade is planning another high-profile fan procession.

At noon on Sunday, Nov. 3 — a bye day in the Saints schedule — organizer Kim Bergeron hopes the Who Dat Nation will assemble in City Park to set a Guinness World Record for “largest second-line.” Because this will be the first time Guinness attempts to document the number of participants in a New Orleans-style street procession, the British institution has ruled that the “Black & Gold Second Line” must exceed 1,000 participants to set the record.



Bergeron, who owns an advertising, marketing and public relations business, estimates that 30,000 Saints fans turned out for the original event on Feb. 3. While that parade was a sort of cathartic consolation after the bitter “no call,” Bergeron hopes the upcoming gathering will have a more upbeat tone. “The world will be watching the Saints especially,” she said. “This is a celebration of resilience and fan love.”

Told y’all.
This is going to be great. B&G needs to come out and represent. I know Kim very well. She is a great promoter and die hard Saints fan.
As the article says Shes the one who put together the second line last year after the no call and it was a huge success.
