Since 1947, the Mother Goose Parade has delighted families with its whimsical floats, marching bands, drill units, clowns, equestrians (including miniature horses!), giant helium balloons, dancers, classic cars and of course, Mother Goose!
Two miles long, and with an estimate attendance of over 250,000 people, it’s the largest parade in San Diego County! Festivities begin at 10:00 AM with the parade route going from Magnolia and Main Streets in downtown El Cajon, ending at Madison.
In celebration of El Cajon’s big Centennial bash, this year’s Grand Marshal is the city’s Mayor Mark Lewis.
Afterward, kids can get their play on at Mother Goose Village (located at the Prescott Promenade; open until 3:00 PM), featuring a rock wall for climbing, bounce house and yummy food vendors!
