Grand Floral Parade


Blossomtime Festival Grand Floral Parade
(tentatively) Saturday May 14, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. EST

The Grand Floral Parade is the Crown Jewel of the Blossomtime Festival and will be
celebrating its 116th year in 2022. The Parade begins in St. Joseph and continues its way through the city, across the Bicentennial Bridge and into Benton Harbor. St. Joseph and Benton Harbor have been the host cities since the Parade’s inception in 1923.

The Grand Floral Parade features over 120 units including bands, floats, clowns, costumed characters, antique cars and tractors, unicycle teams, equestrian units and the famed Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Motorcycle Drill Team.

You are invited to visit Southwestern Michigan to observe the beautiful bounty and
participate in the day’s activities. Come join Miss and Mr. Blossomtime 2021 and their Courts of Honor, and the lovely community Queens as they preside over the Grand Floral Parade.
