Downtown CREDO and the City of Orlando – Families, Parks and Recreation organized the Orlando Together on March 25, 2017.
This is our third year hosting the Parade. It emerged from a bike rally we hosted the three previous years alongside Commissioner Hill and several community centers in District 5. Because we’re convinced that our cities are stronger and our lives are better when they are marked by diversity, this parade celebrates Orlando’s diversity by intentionally bringing groups from different parts of the city together with youth from our neighborhood centers to build floats.
Saturday’s parade will include the same design challenge as last year. Float-building teams representing each of the City’s districts will receive the same materials and be given two hours prior to the parade to construct a float representing their district’s expression of the theme “Orlando Together.”
