Junior Parade

This event is on February 12, 2017 2:30 pm

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!

    Would a 9 year old boy with his (very nice) remote control dune buggy be appropriate? Junior Parade – how many children usually compete in the run and parade?

    • Hi Ann,

      The parade route is a mile long so there may be issues present with that.

      We have more than 100 entries for the Junior Parade this year and last year there were over 200 kids that participated in the fun run!
