With over 150 entries, the De Soto Grand Parade is one of the largest and oldest parades in Southwest Florida. Tens of thousands of people will line the streets of Bradenton to view the illuminated floats and catch a glimpse of our new Hernando DeSoto, Captain of Crewe and their newly crowned Queen and Princess. Beads, coins and other fun items are handed to the crowd throughout the night.

The Parade steps off at 6:30pm from Manatee High School. 

This year, the Hernando De Soto Historical Society says "Thank You" to America's veterans.  Together we salute their service, honor their sacrifice, and promise that their dedication to our country will never be forgotten.
