Cedar City’s 12th Annual Storybook Cavalcade Parad

Last modified on Nov 16, 2015

Saturday was a beautiful day to watch Cedar City's 12th Annual Storybook Cavalcade Parade. The weather was sunny and brisk as spectators lined the city's main street in advance to find a good seat as they wait with enthusiasm for the parade to begin. Main Street was blocked off for the afternoon giving people time to move their vehicles off the city street. As always the parade was geared specifically for children, celebrating the beginning of the holiday season. Some particularly excited kids were even dressed as their favorite princesses and other characters.

The fun started with a low-flying helicopter that swept over the route.

All sorts of storybook characters passed by, including Disney princesses, Star Wars characters and old classics from Mother Goose stories.

Little kids swarmed the road to snatch up pieces of candy thrown to them. Some called out to their favorite characters, sometimes earning a high-five; others danced to the music playing from the floats.

Marching bands played proudly, clowns and princesses danced as they all paraded down Main Street.

There were sponsored handmade floats, as well as “Parade Celebrities,” like Mickey and Minnie Mouse, coasting by in classic cars. Coldwell Banker was represented carrying on their traditional float of the “Grinch”

At the end of the parade came elves, reindeer and then, of course, the much-awaited Mrs. Claus and Santa. Everyone cheered as Santa passed by, his sleigh high upon a rooftop.

As the tail of the parade went by, families packed up and headed home, with the kids still jumping up and down and chattering about their favorite characters in the parade.

According to Cedar City’s website the Storybook Cavalcade is the largest parade of its kind in the Intermountain West, drawing thousands of spectators.
