Now in its 45th year, the National Bank of Arizona Fiesta Bowl Parade is a colorful event reflecting
the spirit of the southwest. The Fiesta Bowl Parade travels a two-mile route through historic downtown Phoenix and features a wide
variety of brightly-colored floats, helium balloons, equestrian units, specialty groups and local celebrities. The parade features
marching bands from across the nation as they represent their hometowns and states.

Throughout its history of excellence, the Fiesta Bowl has hosted marching bands from
44 different states. The Fiesta Bowl Parade is the only major bowl parade where bands
are judged. Adjudicators are highly-rated high school directors who have built
quality music programs in their own communities.
