Very excited as I was invited to participate in our town's Fourth of July Parade, however I need to make a float. And guess what I have no clue on how to do that LOL Any suggestions would so deeply be appreciated. Thank you in advance :)

I figured I would make "goody" bags to distribute during the parade (we have a small town so thinking 150-200 would be good) which would include a recipe card, host flyer, fundraising flyer and wedding registry. Along with some kind of candy to give them the weight they need to be "thrown" from the float.

More years ago than I care to think about, we used to design a pattern to build on a small trailer. The frame was built from lumber and chicken wire was stapled to the wood. Volunteers stuffed pre-cut pieces of various colored tissue into the hex-shaped openings in the chicken wire.

Of course, you could enter "how to build a parade float" into google and see the same 369,000 hits I saw.

(I don't do that much work anymore, either, now I just drive Sonja.)

Here's a coupe of YouTube videos on How To Build A Float (1) and How To Build a Float (2). They aren't much, but they're a start. (I'd be the guy in the second video, drinking the beer while everyone else is working.)

Also because we deal with how to stretch a buck with groceries, you could see if you could borrow a shopping cart to be your frame. As long as you do not mind walking that is.
