Welcome to #SundaysOnParade! Feel free to share with other Disney fans who might enjoy this trip through time.
Today we’re traveling to 1972 to watch a spectacular festival of nighttime magic and imagination in thousands of sparkling lights.
The Main Street Electrical Parade was a regularly scheduled parade, created by Bob Jani and project director Ron Miziker, famous for its long run at Disneyland at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World at the Magic Kingdom Park. That ran in the park from 1972-1975, again in 1977-1983, 1985-1996 and finally in 2017. It featured floats and live performers covered in thousands of electronically controlled lights and a synchronized soundtrack triggered by radio control along key areas of the parade route.
