Karin Barbee and her “bayou babies” will meet at Desmare Playground (3456 Esplanade) at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday January 30 for a walking parade.
Stop by Desmare Playground to visit and have a pastry. Bring a noise making device and parade with the whole family! Participants will make a simple loop. The parade will cross the Magnolia bridge then proceed along Bayou St. John then cross the Orleans Avenue bridge then back to Desmare Playground to play.
Dean Burridge walked many miles each day throughout the neighborhood with his dog Benny. He often walked along Bayou St. John. This parade might be a good way to remember Dean and the circle of life.
