Default 4th of July parade float....

So i came up with a great branding idea today... To be in the forth of July parade.... I found the application and even meet with one of the board members for the parade.... Its only going to cost me $150 plus the float...they even have a free float building seminar in March.... the lady gave me some good ideas too...but i wanted to see if any of you guys have ever done this? or if you have any ideas? or tips?

I've donated paint for floats and in turn had my name on them but I've never had one myself.

Floats can get pretty pricey depending upon the criteria.

I absolutely hate parades. I could not handle being in one.

There isn't much criteria but I don't want to look cheap either...I'm thinking of making a huge paint brush or something on top of a landscape trailer...

OMG, I just had a great idea-- you need to BE the paint brush, walk alongside the float, wave and hand out flyers and candy.

Better yet, load your brush with paint and flick it into the crowd. You'll never be forgotten.
