2016 Parade Theme: LEGENDS
The theme for the 2016 parade is “Legends”. All over the world there are extraordinary and fantastical stories that were once believed to be true but have been relegated to the realm of legend. These legends often involve magical, mysterious creatures such as “Nessie” and “Big Foot”, or super human beings such as Robin Hood and King Arthur or mystical lands such as Atlantis, El Dorado, Camelot and Shangri-La. And of course, there are urban legends, musical legends and Hollywood legends. This is sure to be a legendary parade that will reignite your imagination and wonder.
