Parade Day is the 19th episode of Big City Greens. However, it is the 17th episode in chronological order.
Cricket leaves Gloria to work the coffee shop alone while he enjoys the parade on his break.
Cricket is excited as today is Parade Day. Despite this, Gloria reminds Cricket that neither of them are allowed to go see the parade because they have to work. Gloria herself has always wanted to see the parade, but never got to, because Parade Day is the busiest day at the cafe. This is made all the more infuriating for Cricket as his family get to go see the parade in person. Cricket tries numerous plans to get out of working and sneak away, but Gloria keeps catching him.
Eventually, Cricket realizes that he is entitled to a mandatory fifteen minute break. Despite Gloria warning him that the rush is about to come in, Cricket tells her that he will go run off and catch the parade and get back in fifteen minutes. As soon as he leaves, a large number of people enter Big Coffee, worrying Gloria.
Cricket makes it to see his family, but the parade is still too far out. He decides to reroute them by changing the barriers and recruits Tilly to help him. While Tilly distracts Officer Keys, Cricket successfully reroutes the first barrier. However, on rerouting the second one, a truck full of barriers crashes just as the parade is coming in. With Gloria in over her head, Cricket reroutes the parade through a department store. During the commotion, Tilly "usurps" the title of Miss Splish, a role she had been coveting for the parade.
As they make it outside the department store, Cricket grabs hold of some balloons and Tilly pops them for him so that he can arrive at Big Coffee in time to help Gloria.
When he arrives he is shocked by the messy restaurant and apologizes to Gloria for not being around to help. He tells her that he will take care of things while she enjoys her break. As she steps outside, she is amazed by the sight and quietly thanks Cricket for his help. In the meantime, Bill runs around searching for Tilly, unaware of her new role as Miss Splish.
