Be part of a great experience and join the annual De Soto Grand Heritage Festival which involves almost a dozen different community events, like the Seafood Fest, homemade boating race, the fishing tournament, the musical and fashion show, the black tie ball, the children’s parade, the 5 Kilometers Marathon, and the spectacular nighttime Grand Parade!
The 5km and De Soto Grand Parade event will be on April 28th 2018 and starts at 6 pm. The exact dates for the rest of the community events have not yet been confirmed, but are scheduled to happen from the 24th of March through the 29th of April 2018. For more information please visit the organizer website.
The 5 km race is before the big parade and the runners will start in downtown Old Main St and run on Manatee Avenue all the way down to around 37th St W and then back to Old Main. 175000 cheering spectators along Manatee Avenue make of this a unique and fun marathon!
If you are not interested on running, grab your chair and some food and friends and be part of the most spectacular parade in the southeastern United States!
