Parade of Nations

Join the Opening Ceremonies Parade Friday night!!

Want to be in a Parade? Love Burn’s Friday night celebration begins with a parade.  The success of the parade is completely dependent on community participation, that means you, rock star!

To join in or if you have any questions, contact our Parade Co-leads Kurt D. & Juan Basura and other participants through the Parade Brigade” FB Group page:

THEME CAMP PARTICIPATION: We are asking all theme camps to represent themselves for the Opening Ceremonies procession that will take place around 8pm Friday night.

Some suggestions for your parade group:

  • A banner with your theme camp name on it Costumes that represent your theme.
  • Noisemakers (horns, whistles, drummers, etc)
  • Smaller art cars
  • Art bikes
  • Extra credit for synchronized dances reflecting your country\theme camp!

ROUTE: The route is approximately 3/4 of a mile long, winding its way through the fairgrounds. We will be gathering on the far north end of the beach, near the rocks. Because of Hurricane Irma, the beach on that end is much larger this year. As we make our way to the Parade end point, once we are all gathered, the triumphant torch runners will enter the event, run around the grounds, and then light the Eternal Flame Torch in the center of the field.
