I designed a float for our clinic with our theme being Three Gals & a Syringe. Our banner said "Stick with us for all your medical needs". I made a giant syringe and some of our actual patients participated.
We had the waiting room in the back of our pickup. I had some syringe type water shooters and sprayed the people along the parade route and we threw candy and beads to the spectators. Our giant syringe was just for show. Maybe next year we'll spray the spectators with a giant syringe!
After the parade we had a pulled pork barbeque at the community center where winners of the parade catagories were announced.
We won the "Most Comical" Float award! Following the dinner there was a dance and fireworks, but we didn't stick around for that, it was passed our bedtime. :)
