It's About Time. . . the Design of The Light The World Parade™  Mobile.Portable.Logical.

It's About Time. . .the Dream.

IMAGINE with us.
DREAM with us.
BELIEVE with us.


Would you Believe with us, to create something so special, so unique, that it can go anywhere in the world
and bring a celebration of joy and hope to those in need?

   That's exactly what The Light The World Parade™ was created to do.
It's Mobile. It's Portable. It's Available Now.

So much FUN.
So much GOOD. 

This is your Official Invitation to join us for a unique project built by individual, unique and genuine people just like you!
One strategic piece at a time. Right Here. Right Now.

Top artists and designers from previous major concert tours, festivals, sports and entertainment events got together with
Ed James @ThinkBigStuff and created a portable, renewable parade!
The Light The World Parade™ is a BIG IDEA whose time has come!

This free-form work of art combines high-energy marching arts, old school pep rally dance, athletic skills, innovation, and creative fulfillment like no other.
Designed with a strong pop-culture style, The Light The World Parade™ has been created intentionally to touch hearts and transform lives. It's a live show experience with genuine, kind, honoring, intentional purposes with tangible meaningful results.

    We mobilize youth and young adults in their areas of skill and expertise to bring a message of hopeful expectations filled with happiness. That's what The Light The World Parade™ does.

We've been doing that since it's humble beginnings in 2004, when LTWP was invited to participate in the Athens Olympic Games. Since then we've tested it out and brought big results to Festivals, Parades, Bowl Games and special events. In fact, we've been invited to perform three different times, at the Olympic Games as part of the Cultural Celebrations. Athens, Beijing and London all with premium access and major cultural impact . . . and if only we can get that big break to be seen and understood.
YOU can help make that happen right here. . .right now!

   NOW for the first time since 2012, our most difficult op to date, we are planning to relaunch this big idea at an entirely new level of experience. With your help and belief, we are on our way to bringing our most creative and most joyous effort yet. 
For the past five years we've been designing and working on upgrades for an incredible live show and parade float entry in the 2022 Tournament of Roses Parade, in Pasadena, California, January 1, 2022.
Yes. You read correctly a year from now! 

   This past year, in 2020 we made our efforts known officially and we have since been dreaming with our expert and most awarded Rose Parade float builder, at Fiesta Floats Inc. to begin the process of creating this all New Edition of The Light The World Parade™ 
Titled 'It's About Time . . .'
This mobile, portable ambassador of goodwill in a live show experience will be shared worldwide!

   The design includes 175 Cast Members, Live Pop Music, Dancers, Color Guard, Stunt Performers, Runners,  Large Balloons and specially designed effects never before used in a moving parade float design.
WE NEED your help
to get there!
Your Donation of just $20.20 or even several larger donation amounts placed here,  will create this very special project.
By placing your GIVE BACK BIG donation here at GoFundMe, you will permit us to have even more opportunities for creative direction and impact as we move forward with this concept. 

    We need your help NOW! You can imagine all the build-out time and additional design work we need to complete our designs. Your generous gifts will be essential to our success with the additional benefit of creating something that will impact millions in the viewing audience of the Rose Parade, New Years Day, January 1, 2022

    We believe our time has now come to launch this idea into the future, as a goodwill ambassador to individuals, communities and our nation just in time to deliver JOY-filled expectations in a Celebration of Joy and Hope.
