 “THROUGH THE DECADES”

What’s that you ask?  All entries incorporate a decade into their float, unit, etc.  Think of songs, tv shows, music groups, movies, and more when you think about how your float would represent your decade... 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s.  This year Mayor Freeman will be selecting his Grand Champion entry!

NEW! Family Wagon Floats

Families – Using a wagon as your base, create a float that highlights your decade. Google “wagon float” for lots of great ideas!  Prizes for the best wagon float in each decade.
