HAVE FUN! Remember to wave, smile and enjoy the day!
The parade area is in the heart of downtown Coral Gables near shopping and restaurants. There are no public restroom facilities in the immediate parade route area, and most merchants reserve their facilities for customers only. The Junior Orange Bowl provides a limited number of port-o-potties in designated locations near staging areas. A restroom location map will be posted on this page closer to the parade date.
Food & Beverage Options
There is a wide variety of dining options in downtown Coral Gables. We have compiled a short list of lower-cost options for groups, including links to order online where applicable. This list is by no means comprehensive,and the Junior Orange Bowl does not officially endorse any of these merchants.
