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.

If you are looking for something other than this you can dry backpacking, survival camping, hicking tips and safety guide, water spots such as boating, skiing, and tube riding.

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

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.

Next weekend?
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.
Suggestions:
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.
Computer?

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.

That is way to short a time to have a professional product--but with labels you may be able to customize small bottles of hand sanitizer for example, or packages of a wet wipe to the crowd with your company name, logo, phone and website.

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.

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.

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

and HONOR Veterans and you will be surprised
how fast the float making will go, find the creative
person in the bank the one that decorates for every
holiday and put that person in charge ....
Have Fun , also toss out pens, pencils, magnets
with your LOGO>

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. :)
