I need some help with ideas......
....for a parade float. Our small town has a Parade of Lights to kick off the Holiday season and our vet clinic has decided to enter a float. Last year (our first attempt) we did 'Five Goldens Ringing', just a pick-up, 5 golden retrievers, lots of bells, Santa hats...oh yeah, and lots of Christmas lights...unfortunately just before the parade the converter hooked up to the battery had a melt down, so we borrowed a generator to run the lights, which ran outta gas (literally) 1/2 way down Main Street.
Live and learn :)
Anyway, we've been trying to come up with an idea for this year's projest. Animal related (farm or pet), holiday related is better but others ok (last years winner (a whopping $50) was Pirates of the Caribbean). So far we've come up with "Warmest Wishes for the Holidays" - 40 pink flamingos, dog in a lawn chair, palm tree. "Cold Nose, Warm Heart" - ?????. "Babes in Toyland" - 3-4 pigs, Christmas Tree, big wrapped gifts, a few big toys. Or something with a whole litter of St Bernards, or a minature horse. We certainly could rely on stuffed animals instead.
So how 'bout it? Any ideas? I should add, keep it simple and fairly low budget. (We still haven't told the boss we melted down the $60 converter last year)
Let's have some brainstorming here! Thanks!
