Our local community has a parade in the summer with the theme "Everyone Is Family". Any ideas for a simple float? Thanks so much.

People (or Paper mache people, whatever medium you use) of every age, color, size, shape holding hands around a world globe or something that represents your hometown. Might symbolize family and community togetherness. Kind of corny but there's my two cents. :)
Make a outdoor theme(like a campsite) Trees, picnic table etc. In the center make a imitation fire pit made with rocks. Have a diversity of people sitting around the pit roasting marshmallows. If you have someone who is musical, have someone playing guitar. "Home,home on the range" is a sure hit. Good Luck
Use a flatbed trailer, put a carpet on it, dining room table, and create a scene of a family dinner. Use real people with dinner napkins tucked into their shirts, exaggerated hairdos, anything dramatic. Make a huge pot of big-gauge spaghetti, and show the Mom dishing up a big swinging blob of spaghetti (fake?) If you can use a generator, put it into a cabinet and set a TV on the cabinet with a movie in it of family scenes like 'Lassie'. You could do present-day or '50's. I guess you would not want to do a parody of the family, but instead celebrate genuine family good times.
