This parade will be a big one, so don’t miss it. Bring out the kids and have a great time. Many of these businesses have worked countless hours designing their floats, so it should be interesting. Look for the pictures shortly following the parade to see if you made it in any of the pictures! Billy Bowlegs Parade Pictures 2012.
