Named as the largest night parade in the Southeast year after year, the Grand Parade is a two-hour extravaganza featuring national participants and local marching bands, floats, local government and law enforcement officials, clowns and much more.

Spectators come from near and far to enjoy this event and often begin marking their viewing spot weeks in advance. 7 p.m. Downtown Fort Myers, River District, Fort Myers. 334-2999. edisonfestival.org
