610 Stompers Performing in Macy's Day Parade...Wait Until They See These Guys!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Crescent City Living LLC Licensed LA RE Commission

If there is one thing about New Orleans that people may not get, it's that we embrace the eccentric, the different, the unique.  If you aren't from here, your normal and our normal are two entirely different animals - probably not even in the same species.  

I know that many of the big cities have marching groups that parade on St. Patrick's Day (or whenever people who don't have Mardi Gras parade) but here we have groups that march for anything and everything.  Lundi Gras, Mardi Gras, St. Patrick's Day, Irish-Italian parades, Christmas parades and pretty much any other time we feel like it.  And we have some of those traditional groups that walk the parade route, handing out flowers and kisses along the way.  

But that's not nearly as much fun as when you find a group of guys that not only don't take themselves seriously, but have turned the entire idea of a marching group/dance team upside down.  

Enter the 610 Stompers.

From the headbands to the cheesy red jackets to the spray painted gold tennis shoes and the motto of "Ordinary Men with Extraordinary Moves", you can't watch them and not have a good time.  They have performed at Hornets games, Saints games, in multiple parades and are the epitome of why our town will always be just a little on the fringe of normal ;)

The 610 Stompers will be participating in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (is it really a parade without throws?) and I'm not sure New York is going to know what hit them.  Locally, watch for them between 11:20 and 11:30 am CST.  You can do the math to figure out when they will be on your area, but until then, check out one of the most unique groups to come out of New Orleans in years.

Can't wait to see them in the parade.  They are so funny in the video.

I help brokers build businesses they love.

They stole those outfits from my high school girl's basketball team circa 1976. 

I like your town and your post. I'm glad to see some levity tonight.

Kay, they are having some fun, that's for sure.

Leslie, satire is an art form here and these guys are really, really good at it.  Glad I could make you smile :)

Aren't they the best. And in their own crazy way, they made us proud on Thanksgiving, didn't they? Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em!
