Supporters of NoTsuOh (Houston, spelled backwards) gathered in costume at the historic Crystal Ballroom. King Nottoc XIX and Queen Ailongam III, Duke and C.C. Ensell, had a coronation ceremony with Truett Latimer, King Nottoc XVII, and Catherine C. Brock, Queen Ailongam II. Catherine Anspon and Mister McKinney, co-chairs and emcees, held court on the main stage and introduced Heritage Society executive director Alison Bell and interim board president Minnette Boesel (Queen Ailongam I). There was a second line parade led by the king and queen with horn players joining in. Honorees were Jo and Jim Furr. From 1988 to 1915, NoTsuOh was Houston’s biggest celebration, rivaling New Orleans’ Mardi Gras. The last celebration in 1915 took place at the Rice Hotel ballroom. After a gap of 100-plus years, the Heritage Society has brought it back and aims to make this a signature annual party in Houston, celebrating our history, culture and spirit.
