Join in the Fun!

It goes without saying, but we couldn’t have a parade without our awesome participants!

Every year we have hundreds of organizations and individuals take part the in joyous route down El Cajon’s Main St., showcasing the vibrant diversity of our community.

From humble beginnings in 1947, the parade has grown to include schools from all over the county, civil servants from all over the state, athletes from all over the country, and celebrities from all over the world. Not too bad for this little pocket of East County!

Whether you’ve been in the parade for fifty years, or never at all, we would love to consider your entry. Fill out the form below, and we will get back to you with all the necessary information.
