The Gator Parade started in 1996 as a neighborhood event to end the fun of summer. It first began by having everyone drive their riding lawn mowers in different contest set up around the community point. Gators were introduced about 5-6 years later and a theme was introduced to the party. So every year about 20 gators and tractors participate in the parade and there are tons of games for kids. The resort guests end up being the crowd along with another 150 or so guests that just come to watch the event unfold. Its a ton of fun that we look forward to every year with our guests and neighbors!
