Happy Fat Tuesday Foto Flashback ~ Party Gras

Here's a foto flashback from The 20th Anniversary Surprise Celebration Parade circa 1991. The parades name would be changed to The Surprise Celebration Parade after the 20th anniversay ended. There were six cold-air filled 35-40 feet tall balloons and three floats.
Our family always called it The Party Gras Parade after the Disneyland parade of the same name. The floats and balloons had originated from the popular Party Gras Parade in Disneyland so it made sense to us. The theme was a vibrant blend of Mardi Gras, Carnival del Rio, and Venetian carnivals with characters, acrobats, jesters and stilt walkers. The music kept the parade tempo exciting and festive. You couldn't help but smile and dance or at least sway to the beat. To see giant balloons floating down Main Street USA was a thrill.  Each day of the parade, one lucky family was chosen to ride in the parade on the Roger Rabbit float. It was a huge hit from September 22, 1991- June 1994 in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

Hope you're having a Disney day!
