The parade, which stepped off January 2, 1980, brought the story of “Pinocchio” to life through a chain of floats that represented scenes from the movie. On one, Geppetto played with a tiny Pinocchio puppet. Another featured dancing marionette puppets. Stromboli watched the crowd from yet another float. Jiminy Cricket made an appearance riding atop a large conscience medal float, and the Blue Fairy was also represented in an oversized window float. Pinocchio, of course, appears atop a float with friends Figaro and Cleo the goldfish in her bowl.
The parade ran through June 13, 1980.
