Junior Events

Junior Parade

Sunday, February 15, 2015 at 2:30pm

Florida’s largest youth parade showcases the creativity and talents of hundreds of Southwest Florida children and their families.  Over 100 units including floats, marching bands, dancers, street performers, clowns and dignitaries parade their way around the Downtown river District. The annual event has been taking place in Southwest Florida since the 1940’s and gets better every year!.  The Junior Parade is held during the day and is a smaller version of the Grand Parade.  It’s old-fashioned family fun for participants and spectators.  Come join us and be part of the tradition!

A video of the Junior Parade can be ordered from Colorburst Productions, Inc. for $25.00.

Call 239-482-7150 to get yours!
