The Mother Goose Parade is the largest parade in San Diego County. Each year, the parade attracts thousands of visitors to El Cajon, California. The parade is free and “Always the Sunday Before Thanksgiving.”
Many volunteers work together, all year long, to bring this tradition alive.
Hundreds of entries come from a variety of cities throughout the United States to share in the excitement. Each year we are proud to present a line-up of spectacular motorized floats, glorious marching bands and drill units, eloquent equestrians, animated clowns, special characters, special guests, performing artists, celebrities, giant helium balloons, specialty vehicles, and Santa Claus. Each entry is selected to bring enjoyment to children and adults alike.
Be a part of this wonderful tradition.
