Mister Rogers puts on a parade coat before going to the yard where he has an antique music box. Turning the crank, he encourages viewers to march as he plays music from the box.

Mr. Becze, from the Westwood Zoo, stops by with a groundhog. Mister Rogers feeds the groundhog a carrot as Mr. Becze talks about the animal's habits.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, preparations for the carnival continue as Wally Parker practices his juggling and Mignon Parker makes a paper tree. Mime Walker and Lady Aberlin work on their tight rope act before Lady Aberlin is called to see the King.

At the castle garden, King Friday announces that the carnival is not to be held at the castle as he was never asked for permission to do so. When he is given the responsibility of leading the parade, King Friday quickly changes his mind and gives his permission for the carnival.

Back at the house, Picture Picture shares a film about a parade.


As Mister Rogers puts on the parade coat, Be Brave Be Strong plays in the background.
