In the 40 years of its existence, it has grown from a couple of bands and limited support to over several dozen bands and attracts an estimated 300,000 visitors each year.

They arrive from cities across North America, and the Caribbean. Several Caribbean countries are represented in the parade such as Jamaica, Barbados, Antigua, Dominica, Haiti and Trinidad & Tobago. Several African countries and American High School parade bands have participated.
