A parade should have floats, bands, baton twirling, candy and beer. Huge double decker floats being pulled by giant tractors. Bands of friends – not high school bands. One baton twirling group. Candy throwing…and passing out cups of beer from the floats. Yes – every parade should have that. And everyone in costume, mostly cow costumes. And the floats should have huge speakers mounted on them playing the latest hugely popular pop songs and big cannons that shoot out confetti and a theme and be able to be rocked back and forth without overturning crushing the crowd below.
