I love this nighttime parade. Main Street Electrical Parade used to be my favorite, but Paint the Night is SO AMAZING! It's gives a nod to the electrical parade too.

It costs nothing, all party of your entry fee. Just get a good viewing spot along the parade route in plenty of time.

As pices2277 says, runs thru Sept 3rd. Get there early and find a good seat along the route. It is an amazing Parade, better than the Electric Light Parade that ran just about forever...lol.
