Forty-five years ago, on June 17, 1972, the Main Street Electrical Parade first lit up the night at Disneyland park. It has since gone on to become the classic Disney Parks nighttime parade, even traveling across the country to delight guests at Walt Disney World Resort. Take a look through the years of the parade in the video below!

Main Street Electrical Parade can be experienced once again where it began – Disneyland park – now through August 20. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy this classic and beloved parade!
