Fantasy Fest Parade

Each year, the Fantasy Fest Parade winds through the world famous Duval Street from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean. Lavishly decorated floats and costumed revelers entertain tens of thousands of spectators in the premier Fantasy Fest event. With this year's "Time Travel Unravels" theme, expect the Fantasy Fest 2017 Parade to dazzle and amaze you with creations from the PAST, FUTURE and PRESENT DAY!

The Fantasy Fest Parade route begins at the end of time (the end of Southard Street) in a wormhole, travels through the Big Bang Theory and returns in Rip Van Winkle’s dreams. Be prepared for ghosts of Fantasy Fest past, steam punk in present day, and tourists from the future. The parade kicks off at 7 PM on Saturday, October 28th.
