The Pigeon Town Steppers Club was founded in 1994 by brothers Sylvester and “Rollin” Joe Henry and their friend John, “Moosie” Glenn who wanted to form a men’s only social and pleasure club that would promote unity, fellowship, and community involvement. The club’s name comes from the Pigeon Town “Mid City/Carrollton” neighborhood in New Orleans, where many of its members live. In 2001 the all ladies Pigeon Town Steppers joined the club.
The first Pigeon Town Steppers Club Easter Secondline parade took place in 1995 and has been an annual event ever since. The parade typically features the Pigeon Town Steppers, who are known for their energetic dance moves and elaborate costumes, as well as other social and pleasure clubs from around the city.
Over the years, the Pigeon Town Steppers Club Easter Secondline has become a beloved tradition in New Orleans, attracting locals and visitors alike. The parade is known for its lively music, colorful costumes, and joyful atmosphere, and is a celebration of the city’s rich cultural heritage and community spirit.
