The Main Street Electric Parade was created by Bob Jani and Ron Miziker. The parade original ran from June 17,  1972 until November 25, 1996 at Disneyland.  It was sponsored by Energizer from 1972 until 1985, and  General Electric from 1985 until 1996. It’s “underlying theme song” is the 1967 “Baroque Hoedown” created by Jean-Jacques Perrey and Gershon Kingsley.

The parade’s famous opening announcement is “Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! Disneyland proudly presents our spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination. In thousands of sparkling lights, and electro-synthe-magnetic musical sounds: the Main Street Electrical Parade!”

Michele is a life long Disney fan, and has two sons who have followed suit, each going on their first Disney trip before their first birthday’s. Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
