Glow in the Park Parade

The Glow in the Park Parade was a parade that took place every night during the summer months at select Six Flags parks.

History

Six Flags teamed up with The Goddard Group to create a nighttime parade at several of their parks. The Glow in the Park Parade started at three parks in 2008: Six Flags Great Adventure, Six Flags México, and Six Flags New England. The parade at each park ran from late May to early September each year. During the parade, the theme park lights would dim to increase the visibility of the illuminated floats. The parade featured drummers, puppeteers, dancers, and kinetic stilt walkers. Various Looney Tunes characters, DC Comics characters, Scooby-Doo, and Mr. Six were among the characters that appeared in the parade.

In 2009, the parade was added in two more parks, Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis. In 2010, Six Flags Great America added the parade.

In late 2010, Six Flags began to remove licensed theming from its parks' attractions. While terminating the licenses from attractions, they also terminated the parade at four of their parks, leaving Great America and Mexico the only two parks to still run the parade until 2012.

Music

The song "Let it Shine" that serves as a soundtrack for the parade was composed by Benoît Jutras, with lyrics by Marcy Heisler.
