34th annual King Mango Strut is Sunday

The King Mango Strut is Sunday, December 27 in Center Grove. Starting at 2 pm, the 34th annual event will march from Commodore Plaza, up Main Highway, around to Grand Avenue and end at the post office. It's free and everyone is welcome! Above are AnnaMaria Windisch-Hunt and Rafael Gutierrez in the 2009 parade, as part of the Coconut Grove Gripevine, a parody of us! Photos here.

Come by Sunday, see spoofs of the news from the previous year. The notorious “Kim Davis” is the Grand Marshal, and our new Commissioner, Ken Russell, is the Guest Celebrity, displaying his Yo-Yo expertise!


There are also the FPL Bloodsuckers, an ark to save us from rising sea levels, Trump’s Trolls, and Selfies for the self-absorbed.  And that’s the tame stuff.


Bring your kids to Commodore Plaza, to ride the Little Miss and Little King Mango float in the parade.


Revel to the four great bands in the parade, and at the After Party, on Commodore Plaza, until 6:00 pm.



If you can’t make it to the parade, watch the live streaming, beginning at 1:00 pm here.

It's a colorful, fun day, that brings out everyone! The whole town is out, all the Grove characters and then some.Here's last year's Strut.
