Become a Mangohead; join the King Mango Strut!
|The start of last year's King Mango Strut|
Did you fall back last night? Good. Now it's time to spring ahead for this year's King Mango Strut which is gearing up for it’s 34th annual parade which will be held on Sunday, December 27 (always the last Sunday of the year). The totally free event starts at 2 pm sharp, with the dropping of the banana to get things started. This year's event features four live
bands, all the insanity it can muster, and a great after-party on Commodore
Plaza, follows the parade, which has started to be it's own great event in itself which people look forward to.
no-holds-barred parade makes fun of the past year’s news events, celebrities,
politicians, and any topics that can be laughed at.
At the core of the King Mango
Strut are the Mangoheads, who join
the parade. They volunteer to bring
their humor and creativity to the streets of the Grove, to entertain the
thousands of spectators who line the streets. There are no requirements to be a Mangohead, you your family, and your friends can become
Mangoheads, by coming up with a funny
(operative word) idea, completing an Entry Form describing your idea, and
submitting it, to be included in the parade. Get your entry form at kingmangostrut.org.
The Strut has a series of
Disorganizational Meetings, which are open to the public, where everyone gathers to exchange group
ideas. Have an idea? Need an idea? Need people to join your group? Want to join a group? Then, come
to the meetings. The first meeting is
Wednesday, Nov. 4, 7:00 pm, at Berries in the Grove (2884 SW 27 Avenue). For the full schedule of upcoming
meetings and events, please go to kingmangostrut.org.
