Grand Case light parade brings happiness and splendor

GRAND CASE: Last Sunday marked the great return of the famous Grand Case light parade which had been put on hold since 2017. The public was thrilled.

The association Grand-Case Lighting Parade succeeded in organizing this traditional and fairy event awaited by the community of Grand Case and tourists passing by.

After four years of involuntary pause caused first by the ravages of Hurricane Irma which destroyed all the equipment and then the global health crisis due to covid, the organizers did not minimize their joy to be finally back in the streets of Grand Case.

Nothing could have stopped them. The numerous visitors judging by the number of cars parked on each side of the airport road, it was necessary to be patient to get there, but it was worth it.

Thirteen floats followed one another in front of the fascinated eyes of children and adults alike. The first theme of the light parade was undoubtedly that of Christmas. Passers-by were able to see the Santa Claus float which did not skimp on the distribution of sweets, a float of gifts, without forgetting the traditional crib, or the balloon float.

The 2021 edition was dedicated to Walt Disney’s must loved characters with a float winking at the 101 Dalmatians, Beauty and the Beast, the indispensable Snow Queen and of course… the Grinch, an unforgettable Christmas figure. Let’s not forget the characters of Pocahontas, Jack Sparrow and even Zorro who was also part of the parade.

The parade crossed Grand Case from the stadium to the Post Office, and then back again for a double dose of immersion in the magical world of Christmas.
