36th King Mango Parade takes over the streets of Coconut Grove

The 36th annual King Mango Strut Parade took place Sunday, December 31 in downtown Coconut Grove. 33 groups marched and rode around the triangle in the center of town, parodying 2017. The yearly event takes place the last Sunday of each year and this year being New Year’s Eve and a full moon, made it even more fun.
