Neptune Festival Grande Parade
Streets lined with people, colorful floats in all shapes and sizes, larger-than-life balloons, marching bands…all of which is just a small snapshot of Neptune’s Grand Parade on Saturday. Find yourself the best spot on the block as you enjoy the music and sights of our many parade units. Be sure to keep a weather eye out for King Neptune and his court! With a 16 block parade route, a bad spot is hard to find.
Make sure you get there early though for front row seating as many of the floats will have beads and other fun toss aways to give to the crowd. Come cheer your favorites as all roll down Atlantic Ave starting at 11:30 AM. As a highlight of Neptune Festival, this free event is a must for all, young and old alike. So take a seat on the curb and watch the entertainment roll by.
This event is free and open to the public, and will take place RAIN OR SHINE! For more information, contact the Neptune Festival office at (757) 498-0215.
