2011 Fresh From Florida Parade

Updated 12/30: Please note that it does not cost $23 to attend this event. The $23 is for reserved seating in bleachers. It is free to watch the parade from anywhere else along the parade route. Thanks to one of our readers for pointing this out.

Everybody loves a parade, right?!

If you’ve resided in Central Florida for any decent amount of time you’re likely familiar with the annual parade that takes place in downtown Orlando. Ringing in each new year, the Fresh From Florida Parade is a huge draw for residents, visitors, and even celebrities.

This year’s parade will start at 11am this coming Saturday, December 31st. If you’re interested in attending, tickets are $23. Tickets can be purchased here, and you can also find information on the parade route and lineup.

Here’s a little bit of what you can expect from the parade:

Have you even been downtown to watch this parade?

    This is a terrible disservice to the event! You make it sound like you have to pay $23 to attend!!! This is NOT true, and such misinformation would certainly discourage people from attending. You can attend for free, and most people do! If you want grandstand seating, that’s where the $23 comes into play.

      Appreciate the feedback, Jim, and I updated the post to point that out.

    FYI: Grandstands at Lake Eola, where TV taping take place are $23 dollars. The parade route is free to watch, just bring a chair and enjoy.

      Thanks, Carol. The wording was poor, admittedly.

    Is there a charge to watch along the streets?

      Don’t believe so, Patti. The charge is for sitting in the stands. Check out the map of the parade route, and you can find a spot, cop a squat, and enjoy the parade from there!
