Pride Fort Lauderdale Parade

Pride Fort Lauderdale is very excited to introduce a parade to the festival line-up in 2019. This will be the very first parade in Fort Lauderdale history held on State Road A1A along the beach. The parade will step off at 5:30 p.m. from Windamar Street and proceed down the northbound lanes of SR A1A to Fort Lauderdale Beach Park.

Due to the limited time allowed for the parade on SR A1A, only a limited number of entries are allowed. Also, in keeping with our theme, “Carnaval,” all entries are encouraged to incorporate the festive style of Caribbean and Latin American Carnaval festivals into their vehicles, outfits and activities. Think creativity, choreography and costumes. Several pictures are included below from similar style events to serve as inspiration.

Carnaval Theme Examples

Pride Fort Lauderdale will be working closely with each participating unit to ensure the theme is reflected in each entry. We’ll also be offering free workshops on float decorating, costume design and more to make your efforts just a little easier.

Please complete the following form and a member of the Pride Fort Lauderdale team will contact you with further information and registration details. Registration deadlines are: Nov. 30 – Early Bird, Dec. 31 – Standard Registration (if space available) and Jan. 15 – Late Registration (if space available). Again, due to the limited number of entries we are allowed, you are encouraged to register early.
