A funny thing happened on the way to the Orange Bowl Parade. Well, for one thing, they wanted a lot of money just to get in. Then there was a limit to how many units could be in the parade and a design committee to approve your design.

Bill and Glenn wanted to enter as the Merry Mango Marching Band, wearing conch shells on their heads, playing kazoos and banging on garbage cans. The committee rejected them!

“That’s okay – we don’t want to be in your snooty parade anyway,” Glenn said. “We should start our own parade,”
Bill said. “Who needs King Orange – we’ve got King Mango!,” Glenn said. And so, the King Mango Strut was born. The rest, is history.

By the way, King Orange parades no more. Long Live King Mango!
