For the 42nd year, Arizona’s local celebrities will take to the streets of the city with floats, balloons, and equestrian units to celebrate the Spirit of the Southwest. The annual Fort McDowell Fiesta Bowl Parade will showcase the winners of this year’s Fiesta Bowl events including the Queen and Court, winners of the Twirl-Pom-Cheer and Flag Championship, and participants in the Fiesta Bowl Band Championship.
This year’s Grand Marshall comes imported from the snowy mountains of Colorado, as the Valley welcomes 17-year old Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin to the event. The parade route will traverse nearly two miles of historic Central Phoenix from Camelback Road south of Bethany Home to Seventh Street north of Indian School Road.
