Groceries, clothing, homewares…second line parade?  It isn’t the most common sight to see in a Walmart but in Louisiana, anything seems possible.

 In a post online, Tania Torres shared a video from a Chalmette Walmart showing a second line parade strolling through the store. 

The video shows both employees and shoppers joining in and dancing down the aisle as a brass band plays. 

"Some days I go to Wal Mart to pick up a few things and walk right into this. New Orleans, I just can’t quit you," Torres said on the post.

The parade video only lasts a few seconds but it has been shared over 3,000 times. According to WDSU, the second line parade was held to celebrate new management at the beauty salon in the store.
