Orlando Citrus Parade The Orlando Citrus Parade serves as the kick-off celebration for the Capital One Bowl Game and is one of only two bowl parades that are televised nationally. More than 80,000 spectators line the parade route through downtown Orlando to see citrus floats, clowns and high school marching bands from around the nation.

The parade's unique citrus floats are covered with oranges, tangerines and grapefruit. Floats are constructed using rubber bands to avoid harming the fruit, and the fruit is donated to a local food bank after the parade.

The marching bands and mascots representing the teams playing in the Capital One Bowl also participate in the parade. The 2008-2009 Capital One Bowl Game matched Georgia and Michigan State.

Florida's mild winter weather, combined with Orlando's many attractions, makes the Orlando Citrus Parade a memorable holiday experience for all. The parade is broadcast on more than 100 television stations nationwide. Check local listings for broadcast dates and times.
