Gather around the streets for a view of the parade running every night at select times. The whole family will be awed by the over the top floats, stilt walker, and performers. Little ones will have their own viewing area so they are sure to see everything! The Little Jester’s Parade viewing area is right in front of the Brown Derby Hat Shop.
