2020 parade theme: The Power of Hope

Theme description: The 2020 theme, the Power of Hope, celebrates the influence of optimism and hope. It is about the belief that what is wanted can be attained. From the struggles of those who came before us to dreams yet to be realized, optimism is more than simply the possibility of fulfillment. It is dignity and respect, joy and happiness, aspiration and achievement. Through hope and optimism, we can aspire to be our best and in turn, inspire those around us to reach higher. With hope anything, in fact, everything is possible.
