King Mango Strut Parade- December 29, 2013

The parade will be held December 29, 2013 
What started as a rejected group from the King Orange Bowl Parade has grown into the wackiest event in South Florida. The King Mango Strut is the most fun event Miami has to offer, full of irreverent, creative and wacky people and lots of opportunity to make fun of everything and anything. The parade route begins at the corner of Commodore Plaza, and Main Highway. It turns left onto Main Highway, left onto Grand Ave, and then back around Commodore Plaza. After the strut, stick around for entertainment and bands playing all over the Grove to ring in the New Year! 2p
