Do you want to rally to keep insanity alive? Despite the fact that sane rational people will stay away in droves, the insane will gather on Sunday, December 26th at 2pm, for the 29th King Mango Strut Parade to disperse gallons of oily jokes, slick skits and plumes of environmentally-challenged laughter into the pristine streets of downtown Coconut Grove. There’s no containment dome, top hat, or blow-out preventers for this all-day gusher that is guaranteed to last a long, long time. You don’t have to travel to Washington to fly the colors and show your home made sign, just take to the streets of Coconut Grove and do it in front of your friends and neighbors.
What started out in 1982 as an uprising of rejected kazzooists from the King Orange Bowl Parade has grown into the wackiest event in South Florida. (Not counting special elections, recalls, UFOs or boat-jumping-man-eating Hound-fish sightings) The King Mango Strut Parade is South Florida’s Premiere event for unrestrained parody in the sun with no sunscreen required. It’s mucho mango irreverence, filled with twitterlicious satire and skits that poke fun at everything and anything…including itself! Come witness a man sue himself and win!! There is no better place for the Strut than Miami. The city strange provides more material than can be used in one parade. As creative as Mango-heads are, even they couldn’t come up with some of this stuff. Just look at the results of the last election.
Are you ready to restore humor? Are you ready to rally and send a message to our soon-to-be recalled leaders that it is time to keep the “nut” in Coconut Grove? Give us Sanity or Give us Strut! Drink the mango infused tea and join the ultimate Tea Party rally!
Don’t be late, don’t be late for a very important date at the Kick-Off Rally to Restore Humor on Wednesday, November 10th at 7pm at Greenstreet Café, 3468 Main Highway (corner of Main Highway and Commodore Plaza,) in Coconut Grove. http://greenstreetcafe.net
But if you just can’t wait to join the insanity, get a Mango-head start at the Pre-Kick-Off Rally to Keep Insanity Alive on Friday, November 5th at 7pm at The Taurus, 3540 Main Highway, in Coconut Grove. Dancing with the Mango-heads begins at 9pm with “MR. REE” (Carlos, Daniel & Terry)
In addition to fun-raising, there’ll be a fundraiser called Chance for Some Stuff. The Grand Prize is a 7-day Star Clippers Caribbean Cruise for two plus dozens of other great prizes. You can buy a ticket for a $5 donation at any of the Pre-Strut rallies. Lucky winners will be drawn at the ‘It’s-never-too-late-to-strut’ Rally on Wednesday, December 15th at 8pm at The Grove Spot, 3324 Virginia St, Coconut Grove http://grovespot.com
Come on out to rally with the Mango-heads, bring your funniest idea and get ready to offend the offensive. They dare you to Strut once… and then see if you just want to watch after that. If you have a group and a funny plan – great! If you want to participate but don’t know what to do, don’t worry; the wacky Mango-heads will certainly find something nutty for you.
