Our first 4th of July Parade award is for Most Creative Float.
Most parade entrants go with the candidate simply walking behind or in front of a banner. That’s OK and all, but we like, and think it’s much more enjoyable for those sitting on the curbs, when an parade entrant has something else going on other than just a candidate and stickers.
With that in mind, we liked these three:
Mike McGowan for MUD Board, who added a Chrysler Prowler into his entry. A cool car is always a good addition, and props too for Mike walking in the parade, as opposed to in the car.
Kudos to Jeff Fortenberry for Congress in Seward for the red covertible in his entry (hey don’t walk so fast!).
Next we recognize the Jim Esch for Congress camp for the addition of a Statue of Liberty. It’s a little awkward in the back of that pickup, but that’s better than nothing.
Next up: Largest Float Presence.
