Jimmy Buffett hometown second line parade
September 10 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Let’s celebrate the amazing life of Jimmy Buffett in his own hometown with a second line parade through downtown Mobile and an after party at Moe’s Original BBQ!
Come dressed in your best Parrot Head attire or Jimmy Buffett costumes and be prepared to dance in the street behind Blow House Brass Band. Musicians of all kinds and any other brass bands are encouraged to bring their instruments and jam out in the second line as well. Bring the whole family!
We’ll meet at the Riverview Plaza at 3pm and the parade will take off at 4pm. We’ll go down Dauphin Street and end at Moe’s Original BBQ. There, we will partake in margarita and cheeseburger specials from our friends at Moe’s while enjoying the music of Jimmy Buffett performed by Teddy Williams and friends. Musicians are invited to sign up and perform their own tribute to Jimmy. Think of it like a Margaritaville open mic night! All are welcome to participate and perform their favorite Buffett song.
Pets are welcome in the parade, but are not allowed at Moe’s. Cars, trucks, trailers, boats, and sea planes are not allowed in the second line. Golf carts are allowed especially for those with difficulty walking.
Thank you to Moe’s Original BBQ, Downtown Mobile Alliance, ABC Signs, Riverview Plaza Hotel, and the Mobile Police Department, as well as everyone else who has helped to bring this together. Fins up!
