EUROPA-PARK HALLOWEEN PARADE

EUROPA-PARK (2015-2019) - IAAPA BRASS RING AWARD FINALIST

Project Leader, Show Director, Parade Manager

 

The EUROPA-PARK HALLOWEEN PARADE offers a unique opportunity and challenge: This family-friendly parade offers scary fun in bright daylight in the early course of the run and turns into a night parade its the last week. Therefor, floats, props and costumes must be prepared to operate in a most diverse way. The parade premiered in 2015, building on the success of the then new CELEBRATIONS parade, and has been improved, upgraded and developed further ever since.

An illuminated 18-meter Christmas Tree, more than 70 individually programmed light costumes, props and floats, a compelling storyline and beautiful show music performed by the park's lead characters add up to Europa Park's most successful parade to date with a close-to-perfect score in the visitor surveys.

ED'S PARTY PARADE - LET'S DANCE!

Project Leader, Show Director, Show Writer, Parade Manager

"Let's Dance!" is the motto and the next step in the evolution of Europa-Park Parades, building on the success and further establishing the brand of "Ed's Party Parade". With all new music and choreography, 90 performers, 12 floats, several new costumes and lots of infectious energy, this parade is the perfect invitation for the guests to party along and enjoy their day with an additional dreamlike quality.

ED'S PARTY PARADE

EUROPA-PARK (2016)

Project Leader, Show Director, Show Writer, Parade Manager

 

The main challenge of this new project was to write a storyline which logically combined several different new elements, such as costumes, props, music, etc. A new pre-show and new announcements had to be written to match that storyline and all other elements of this parade had to be produced, gathered and organized. "Ed's Party Parade" is the next step in the evolution of parades at Europa-Park.
