The Parade takes pride in being one of the few travelling festivals remaining in the world. With its small colourful tents circling the terrain of the Martin Luther King Park it is like an 'inside out' circus with the public placed in the middle of the action, surrounded by the performers. Indeed it is inspired by the medicine shows of days gone by that would arrive in town making a 'parade' and then give short performances for the townspeople. Beware of which tent you choose to enter, it could be serious or in the spirit of fun. If you want to dine on the spot the Parade offers different restaurants with exotic world kitchens.
