Children's Fiesta Parade


Saturday, August 3, 2024 at 10:00 AM

Parade Route: The parade begins near the corner of Cabrillo Boulevard and Garden Street, and ends near Cabrillo Boulevard and Calle Puerto Vallarta.

The Children’s Fiesta Parade, a favorite event during the week-long Old Spanish Days Fiesta Celebration, is celebrating its 92nd year in 2024! Each year has brought new families and youth groups together alongside others who have proudly participated in the Children’s Fiesta Parade for generations.

Parents, families, and friends create and decorate their own floats, carts, and wagons to join this foot-powered parade. Participants typically dress in colorful Spanish and Mexican costumes, with music and dance performances to add to the fun.
Applications to participate in the parade must be completed by Friday, July 5, 2024.
