Event Description

The Annual Florida Citrus Bowl Parade / Nationally televised parade from Downtown Orlando celebrating the Capital One Bowl game between the Wisconsin Badgers and the South Carolina Gamecocks.

This year we are looking for a total of six convertibles (muscle cars to classics and streetrods) and one classic pick up truck. The cars and truck will carry some of Universal's best known characters.

Each participating car owner will receive two complimentary Universal Orlando one day / two park tickets.

This is a long parade with several starts and stops due to television filming, it is suggested that participating vehicles be equipped with electric fans to avoid potential over heating issues.  Staging is at 8am with parade start at 10am.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Ray

We were there last year but got rained out. Wish we could do it again but couldn't keep Chally for just these outings. We'll be watching on TV and "Go Badgers"

I am not able to attend (no convertible either,) but there are several members of the Central Florida Corvette Association that would like to volunteer. If Ray will email me with his contact info, I'll pass it on. corvette@mike2977.com

Hi Brandon. My wife and I would love to participate. My cruiser is a very  pristine and substantially restored 1970 Buick Le Sabre convertible in Christmas  red (you can see it on my Mid Florida Cruisers website/member since 2008). It  has been in a number of parades including Oviedo H.S. and  Hagerty H.S  homecomings, and three years leading the Geneva, Fla. 4th of July parade. The  car has a new engine, radiator, etc. so there would be no problems. Please let  me know. Thanks. You can e-mail me through Mid Florida Cruisers or give us an  update at pbrownell@cfl.rr.com   or call at 407-977-7662. Thanks.
