From inaugural floats that honored presidents to the playful polar bears
and giant genie that won Rose Parade honors, there's something for everyone
to enjoy at the American Celebration on Parade at Shenandoah Caverns,
Virginia. While adults will recognize famous floats from nationally
televised parades, children will enjoy the fanciful movement designers build
into the huge creations to bring them to life. There's even a huge Cootie
Bug from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade that will bring back childhood
memories for many.
If you're a serious student of the presidents, you'll discover historical information about America's inaugural traditions and links to other Presidential sites at the www.shenandoahcaverns.com website.

American Celebration on Parade is one of the Shenandoah Caverns family of attractions. Shenandoah Caverns is Virginia's only cavern with elevator service. Main Street of Yesteryear is a walk down memory lane with antique animated department store window displays like those families used to view together during the holidays on main streets across America. The Yellow Barn at Shenandoah Caverns offers food service, Virginia arts and crafts, and agricultural heritage exhibits. The attractions are open all year and are just two minutes from Exit 269 of I-81.
