The parade begins at the intersection of Monroe Street and Thomasville Road and travels south on Monroe Street past the Florida Capitol ending at Gaines Street. The first Springtime parade featured many costumes and only horse drawn units. Today, the parade still includes horse-drawn carriages to provide a bit of nostalgia; however, it also boosts elaborately clad characters and spectacular mechanical floats from all over the southeastern United States. Springtime Tallahassee is considered one of the biggest southeastern parades and craft shows, attracting over 70,000 spectators.
