We 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 blend of Mardi Gras and Carnival del Rio 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 Resort.
I hope yours is a magical weekend!!
