2017 Fiesta Bowl Parade

The National Bank of Arizona’s Fiesta Bowl Parade will march through central Phoenix on a 2-mile route at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 30.

3TV is the official broadcast partner for the parade and Scott Pasmore, Olivia Fierro, April Warnecke and Javier Soto will host the fun-filled parade, which has been a family tradition for decades.

The Fiesta Bowl Parade is in its 46th year and will feature amazing floats, giant helium balloons, equestrian units, marching bands, local celebrities and several specialty and charitable groups.

With the theme of Champions of the Community, the parade is a big one. In all there are nearly 100 entries.

This year’s grand marshal will be Arizona Coyotes legend, Shane Doan.

“I’ve had a chance to work with him for 11 years at the Coyotes and so I knew him as a player, but also I knew him as a person. When it came time that he was retiring I thought it is a great way to honor him for all the great things that he had done for the community,” said Mike Nealy, executive director of the Fiesta Bowl.

Doan is the longest-term professional athlete in Arizona history, spending 20 years in the Valley with the Coyotes.

“During my playing career, I never had the chance to experience the Fiesta Bowl Parade and, for my first one, it’ll be incredible to lead the way,” said Doan.
