The Parade of the Bands takes place on Sunday, the day before Columbus Day, and features over 18,000 masqueraders in over 20 masquerade bands meandering around on an approved parade route. The parade starts at noon and ends at 11 pm with a concert that follows the judging of the bands. The pulsating music, the beauty, and pageantry are all legendary!
This year the Kings, Queens & Individuals costume competitions will take place with the Miami Carnival parade of bands. This part of the competition brings out the biggest and most elaborate costumes as the masqueraders compete for bragging rights, a trophy and huge cash prizes!
