The Festival begins each year with a themed street parade departing 1770 Marina at 9 am and finishing at SES Festival grounds at 10 am.

The theme for 2018 in “Experiences in our Paradise”. Come and watch both community and business groups interpret their version of Experiences. It’s lots of laughter and some serious interpretations, however, one of these entrants will be everyone’s favorite.

This year judging will be performed by those watching the parade. We will advise voting procedures before the event.

The parade finishes at 1770 Festival  Grounds with each groups introduction at the main stage and announcement of the winner.

The perpetual trophy will be presented.

Here’s a  head start for 2019- the theme is Harmony.
