“Lots of parade floats on show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Whilst visiting Shenandoah Caverns you may as well pop into the American Celebration on Parade, which is just down the road and included in your ticket price.

It is basically a room full of enormous parade floats from over the years. They are huge and intricately decorated. Some are interactive so you can press a button and get them to move. Some you can sit on, so fun for kids.

You get the choice of a guided or self-guided tour, we chose self-guided as each float has an information board so it is easy to know what everything is about.

This place was awesome. Here is your chance to be up close and personal with many floats that you probably only saw on TV o from a distance. Thank you Mr. Hargrove and staff for keeping these things for everyone to see

“Parade Floats...then what???”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Interesting bonus with caverns ticket. Short walk through reveals awesome craftsmanship that goes into parade floats. Musical ducks were our favorite.

I loved being able to push the buttons and to see the floats move. Again good add on.

“Cruise Attraction”

Ever wonder what they do with parade floats after they are done. Visit this place and find out! You won't be sorry you visited. Convenient location to other Mt. Jackson attraction including caverns and Rt. 11 Potato Chips. Put this on your list.

“Floats and more floats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is part of your ticket price when you visit Shenandoah Caverns. The floats are from inaugural parades or others and are HUGE. There is a train car you can climb up into and several photo opportunities. Some of the displays are animated still.
