All of the floats must be covered in natural materials. These floats must all be covered at the last minute. The floats can cost hundreds of thousands of collars. No cullions pulling a flat bed behind a four wheel drive in this parade. There will be 42 floats in the parade. You do the math. Then you have to consider the logistics of getting all the marching bands in place with bands coming from as far away as Japan. The parade starts at ten this morning.
