Springtime Tallahassee

By  | 

The Springtime Tallahassee tradition continues to grow.

The parade started 37 years ago when the state was considering moving Florida's Capitol to Orlando, when the top Tallahassee leaders donned their brightest colors and marched to the Capitol on a campaign to keep it right here.

The sound of drum beats and the colors of spring filled the streets of Tallahassee.

Even though insurance rates threatened the end of the parade last year, local businesses have donated enough money to make sure the parade doesn't skip a beat.

The kids just loved it.

Groups from Tampa, Bradenton, Ft. Walton Beach, Pensacola and Lake City come in for the event. All totaled, there were more than 150 units and colorful floats making this year's event kept up the time honored tradition of the springtime parade.
