In our final 4th of July Parade Award of the day, we give Best Overall Entry.
This pretty much comes down to two (that we have pics for).
The Mike Johanns for Senate campaign, which was at three different parade stops and concluded the weekend with Mike driving a tractor in the West Point parade on the 5th. That’s a lot of organization and volunteers.
But we give our final parade props to the Jim Esch for Congress campaign for their appearances at JE George and Ralston.
They had a great number of volunteers and a good entry with the addition of a Statue of Liberty float. While we deduct points from the campaign’s dopey decision to spend six grand to pass out bottles of water (why not just dollar bills next time?), the volunteer presence and the extra effort (if not expense), made it a nice and effective parade entry.
Thanks to everyone who provided photos, and if you have others, we may do another post of pics in the near future.
