Stanley’s Bar-B-Q holds Second Line Parade and Mardi Gras Party in Tyler
TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Stanley’s Famous Pit Bar-B-Q in Tyler hosted its second annual Second Line Parade and Mardi Gras Party Tuesday evening. The Revelers Hall Band led the New Orleans style parade from downtown Tyler to Stanley’s.
Carl Coulter, Stanley’s general manager, planned the family-friendly event to have food specials including gumbo and jambalaya, drinks from the bar and live music. He said they have developed a good partnership with the City of Tyler to successfully pull off this event.
“The city buses are going to be helping us out by getting people downtown,” said Coulter, “so no one has to park there and walk back and forth. It’s just one fell swoop. We’re going to have the Tyler Police Department helping us out with blockading streets as we cross and also as a pilot for the parade to help guide us all safely through. They’re going to help, you know, keep the restaurant secure while we’re all gone as well. It’s just going to be a great time.”
The New Orleans style parade started promptly at 6 p.m. Tuesday on the downtown Tyler square.
