The Lady Jetsetters parade will parade through Central City on Saturday.

Two second lines will parade through areas of Uptown New Orleans this weekend, one running the length of Central City on Saturday and another looping through the neighborhoods around Louisiana Avenue on Sunday.

The Lady Jetsetters, making up for an earlier parade that was canceled due to weather, will begin at noon Saturday on Washington Avenue beyond Broad Street and cut a long swath through Central City, passing down Martin Luther King Boulevard and ending on Dryades Street in Milan. The second line will feature the Stooges Brass Band.
