June 12, 1975 – America on Parade Begins in Disneyland

“Floats throughout America on Parade represented historical, cultural and scientific achievements throughout the first 200 years of our nation.”

On June 12, 1975, the daytime parade America on Parade began its run in Disneyland. Celebrating the bicentennial of the United States of America, the parade featured special floats and character costumes that celebrated the history, culture, and heroes of the country, accompanied by a medley of popular songs. The parade was also led by Mickey, Goofy, and Donald, dressed in the “Spirit of ‘76” costumes. This parade was the first time that the parks on both coasts jointly worked on a production, which was viewed by over 25 million guests. The Disneyland version of the parade ran for 678 productions, ending on September 12, 1976.
