Welcome to #SundaysOnParade!
If you’ve been with us since the beginning, welcome back and if this is your first Parade Trip with us then I hope you have a blast and join us again next week. 😀 If you have memories from seeing any of these parades in person, please feel free to share the memories with us. And as always, if you know someone who would enjoy these posts because they love parades, Disney, time travel or history please share with them.
Last week we traveled to Disneyland to see the State Fair Parade. This week we’re celebrating Christmas in July with Disneyland’s Very Merry Christmas Parade. The parade ran from 1987 to 1993.
In 1987 the Fantasy on Parade was permanently retired, and the replacement name from the 1977 holiday parade was reinstated. The new version was basically the same as Fantasy on Parade, but a slow evolution began year by year. Each year more of the non holiday elements based on Disney films were omitted and the Christmas sections were further expanded. By the end of this parade’s run in 1993, the entire parade has become a holiday themed, with no movie segments remaining.
