Any ideas for a great outdoors themed parade not just the usual fishing and hunting themes. I need something unique, this is a small town parade. Anyone with any good ideas would be much appreciated!
You could tie in lots of flowers ,plants, veggies, farming equipment, farm animals, horses, etc. Everyone could wear white shirts/tee shirts and blue jeans with straw hats, boots to complete the look!
You could go with a camping theme and tie in a forest/woodland theme and woodland animals.
Go with an ecology theme. We all need to be aware of the environment around us and what we plant and use around our home. I would work with gardening and growing your own food. Organic gardening is a great way to present an outdoor theme for your parade.
I wonder if you're even having much of a parade now, as everything seems to be closed up
Be that as it may, maybe a nice astronaut theme would work. That is technically out of doors, in outer space. Have everyone dress as astronauts, throw sparkles to be like stars, make vehicles into spaceships, etc. This would be particularly useful if you were in an area like Huntsville AL or other with a NASA presence

My new Direct Primary Care clinic is entered into our small town parade next weekend. Any cool ideas for a float or some other fun way to participate?
Make costumes of common instruments found at health care places: Stethoscope, old style thermometer, sphygmomanometer, syringe, urine cup, medicine capsule, etc. Would be very cute to wear in a parade.
Such short length of time will probably require very simple ideas.
Since Direct Primary Care clinics treat patients of all ages you might be able to set up a short float/trailer if someone has one available or possibly rent one (and a truck/tractor to pull it).
Not sure if there is time to order or make a long banner for the sides so you might have to do some thinking on what to use to identify your float.
You could maybe set up 2 or 3 'scenes' each representing a different age group.
1.) Infant/children: (use dolls or babies) dressing table/baby bed or small table with nurse/doctor talking with a child.
2.) Senior: patient with doctor/nurse describing a 'condition' (x-ray/chart/large picture) that may need 'fixing'.
3.) Patient: sitting in chair having consolation with doctor/nurse.
Hope it works out and everyone has fun.
Yikes! Next week does not give a lot of time! How about something simple...like poster board with your logo, your website and tag line for all to see. You can have your team sit in a convertible car and hold up the signs and wave. Perhaps you could hand out something health related along the route if you are permitted to walk beside your car or float.
Post back what you decide!
Have everyone dress up as something medical: doctor, nurse, bandaid, stethoscope. Have a posterboard painted with a Red Cross. Good luck.
I have to use a theme 1989 for a float we are entering in a parade. I am looking for help.
You could do a whole tribute to the change from the paper dollar to the coin that happened in that year! Decorate the float in fake bills and coins.
Or you could pick a song that was popular that year...or a group...
Like wasn't that the year that Milli Vanilli was called out for lip syncing...you could have a whole float with people dressed as the duo (I know they were not Canadian but lip syncing is fun)!
Or you could always go old school with a hockey tribute or a tribute to Niagara falls or all of the wonderful Canadian rock stars over the years.
Post back with what you decide!
You could create a float with a 1989 movies theme such as The Little Mermaid or Batman or 1989 TV shows such as The Simpsons or Seinfeld.
Saying goodbye to the 80's, tying in some of more current looks,showing the difference sense the eighty's,with old and new,Titled Then and Now!
I would like some ideas for a parade float for a medical cannabis shop entry.
I work for a credit union and we have been invited to join a local parade. We're all searching for ideas to add to the float. We want the name of our company on the float and we want to involve the crowd. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
use chicken wire and tissue paper to spell out name and throw penny candy to the crowd
Make it a theme for the Community, such as
use Puppy/kitten themes and have empty boxes
set up at Credit Union to collect stuff for animal
shelters, food, towels etc or go RedWhitenBlue
I have some ideas...email me at mvm9607 @ aol.com (remove spaces) Mark

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. :)
We are going to be in our town's Sweet Corn festival parade. We are a construction company (Redcliff Construction) and the theme is corn. Please help!
We have a 4-H group and are looking for ideas for our float for the parade.
We have a ski boat we will be entering in a 4th of July boat parade this summer. The parade theme this year is "Our Children". Any great decorating ideas?
We are a line dancing group and are going to be in a town parade with the theme "Timeless Traditions". We have a 2 level flatbed and always put a theme on the highest level while we dance on the lowest level while traveling the parade route. Any ideas? I was thinking on the lines of family based?
