The free King Mango Strut Parade takes place on Dec. 29 in Coconut Grove. The off-beat parade pokes fun at everything and anyone. The parade parodies international and local events in the last year and pushes the envelope of good taste, all in good fun.
This year expect to see parodies on all things orange, impeachment and more.
The parade begins at 2 pm with the “dropping of the banana” at the corner of Commodore Plaza and Main Highway. It turns left onto Main Highway and then turns left onto Grand Avenue at CocoWalk and turns left again at Commodore Plaza.
Commodore Plaza will remain closed to traffic until 5 p.m. for post-parade music and dancing. Performing will be local favorite bands.
Parking (map) There is parking a block away from the parade route at the Municipal Garage at Oak Avenue and Mary Street, as well as CocoWalk, Mayfair, Coconut Grove Playhouse, St. Stephens Episcopal Church, and Coconut Grove Elementary School.
