    WHEN I WAS AT EPCOT YEARS AGO THEY HAD A PARADE CALLED TAPESTRY OF NATIONS. I REALLY LOVED IT AND WAS WONDERING IF THEY STILL HAVE IT. I WILL BE THERE ON MARCH 15 THROUGH MARCH 22. THANKS AND GOD BLESS.

    I enjoyed the Tapestry of Nations parade at Epcot too, Barry.  One of my oldest daughter's fondest memories is when one of the puppeteers singled her out in the crowd to dance momentarily with the giant puppet as it passed.  Unfortunately though, this parade has since been discontinued. 

    I'm not sure if you've seen it or not, but you might enjoy Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade at the Animal Kingdom.  In my opinion, the feel of it is very similar to the Tapestry of Nations parade.  Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade features colorful, oversized puppets much like those that once skipped along the Promenade in Epcot's World Showcase.  Of course, there is plenty of upbeat music and lots of lively performers as well.  If you're really lucky, you might even be chosen to be an active participant in this afternoon parade.  Each day, many park guests are chosen at random to join in on the fun and ride along the parade route in specialized carriages. 

    Unlike the unity and world peace theme that was depicted in the Tapestry of Nations Parade, Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade is more of a tribute to all of our animal friends.  While the themes of these two parades don't match up, overall, the costumes, puppetry, and whimsy of each are certainly reminiscent of one another.  You might want to check it out during your next visit and see for yourself!
