The 45th Annual NB|AZ Fiesta Bowl Parade kicked off at 11 a.m. (MST) on Jan. 2. First staged in 1972, “Arizona’s Got Game,” is a two-mile parade through central Phoenix featuring more than 100 floats, marching bands, local celebrities and entertainment.
This is the second year NB|AZ has been the title sponsor of the parade. It is estimated that more than 100,000 residents and tourists attended the parade on a picture-perfect, Arizona winter day.
NB|AZ Vice Chairman Deborah Bateman was joined by Krysten Aldridge, an NB|AZ partner and co-founder of ONe TRUe LOVe, a Phoenix food truck that serves meals to the underserved and homeless.
In addition, Bateman had the honor of introducing former Arizona Diamondback pitcher Randy Johnson as the Grand Marshall of the National Bank of Arizona Fiesta Bowl Parade.
