(Coral Gables, November 2016) – Every holiday season for 68 years the Junior Orange Bowl Parade has celebrated youth, community, and culture with floats, marching bands, equestrian groups, vintage cars, and much more. The Junior Orange Bowl is proud to announce the Orange Bowl Committee as the Presenting Sponsor of the 68th Parade, which will be on Sunday, November 27th at 4pm in downtown Coral Gables. The “Holiday on the Mile” Parade is the perfect way to end the Thanksgiving weekend and kickoff the holiday season with loved ones.
The Parade route will begin on Alhambra Circle and Ponce de Leon, head south to Miracle Mile, and finish at the grandstands in front of City Hall on Biltmore Way. Grandstand ticket holders will also enjoy the pre-parade show, presented by Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, featuring The Actor’s Playhouse performing hits from Million Dollar Quartet to begin the Parade festivities. Million Dollar Quartet is a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical inspired by the famous photo and phenomenal true story of the famed recording session that brought together rock ‘n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins for the first and only time in their careers. Barbara Stein, Executive Producing Director of the Actor’s Playhouse said “Million Dollar Quartet is the hottest Broadway musical to hit the stage in Miami in years! We were so sure that it would be a smash hit and positive experience for families that it will be running for 11 weeks here at the Actor’s Playhouse on Miracle Mile.”
The Parade is free to attend and open to the public. Grandstand tickets will be on sale for $10, or $30 with access to the Hospitality Suite. The Junior Orange Bowl is currently accepting applications to participate in the Parade. The Parade is open to any school, community, corporate, or youth organization that wishes to showcase its cultural talents and promote its mission.
