Mr. Burt Reynolds - 2018 Grand Marshal and Jupiter’s most famous son
The 42nd Annual JTAA Christmas Parade will honor and memorialize this year’s Grand Marshal and Jupiter’s most famous son, Mr. Burt Reynolds. The parade will take place on Sunday, December 9, 2018 at 1:00 PM. The parade route runs from Jupiter to Tequesta along Old Dixie Highway and Alternate A1A.
Mr. Reynolds brought so much to our community through the establishment of the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre and the Burt Reynolds Institute for Theatre Training.
During his career Burt received nine People's Choice Awards, everything from Favorite Motion Picture Actor to All Around Male Entertainer and Best Performance in a Television series.
Mr. Reynolds invited mega stars to Jupiter starting then and continued from the filming of "Smokey & the Bandit" to the amazing actors he brought in for his productions at the dinner theater. The likes of Carol Burnett, Martin Sheen, Jim Nabors, Florence Henderson, Kate Jackson, Charles Durning, Ned Beatty and Farah Fawcett. The list goes on and on. He also introduced the South Florida theater audiences to some fantastic Broadway actors.
We are thrilled to share the exciting news of the Bandit Run Trans Am Club’s participation in our memorial segment. This includes the Jackie Gleason Police car, The "Snowman" 18 Wheeler and a great parade of vehicles to honor “The Bandit.”
If it takes a community to put on a community event then we need, the community to pass on the word of this parade. Please like and share this information with as many people as you can on your Facebook page.
Thank you all for your support for the past 33 years as Director…I have always been proud and privileged to carry on the tradition of this parade that started forty-two years ago.
