Hester and Walter Besteda:
A 2009 Dynamic Duo, Walter and Hester Besteda are the official Grand Marshall and Countess for the “Second Line.” They met as students at Dilliard University in New Orleans and continue to go back for Homecoming each year, where the “Second Line,” with umbrellas bouncing and handkerchiefs twirling, encourage people join in.
Follow the leader, enjoy the beat of the brass instruments and the pulsating drum. Join the parade with our Honorees, our Students and you, as we march to the Show Dome and back to the Dining Room. “Laissez Le Bon Tempo Roulez,” they say: Let the good times roll!
