The Paint the Night Parade (or Paint the Night Electrical Parade, as it is titled within the show) opened May 22, 2015 as part of Disneyland's 60th Diamond Celebration, in commemoration of its 60th anniversary. This version of the parade utilizes over 1.5 million LED lights, special effects, and features 76 performers. The California version of the parade was inspired by the Main Street Electrical Parade. It is Disneyland's first all-LED parade. The parade lasts approximately 17 minutes. During the Diamond Celebration, the entire 24-hour event was streamed live via internet by the Disneyland Resort, including the premiere of Paint the Night parade on May 22, 2015. Like the Hong Kong version, the parade jointly features arrangements of Jean-Jacques Perrey and Gershon Kingsley's "Baroque Hoedown" and Owl City's "When Can I See You Again?". This version, now in English, features new lyrics for the parade along with vocals and arrangement from Adam Young of Owl City. Following the Diamond Celebration, Paint the Night at Disneyland will do a short run during the Holiday season before Disneyland revives the Main Street Electrical Parade. There are currently no plans for it to run again after January 8, 2017.
Celebrate—with a splash of color and a dash of magic—as the biggest, brightest, most vibrant parade in the history of Disneyland Park returns!
