We want to see your float from space! (Deck the Halls)

Chose an iconic Christmas story, either a favorite childhood story or one that you can’t go without hearing/watching every holiday season, to feature as your float for the parade. The options and creativity are endless! We all know “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!” (Elf) Christmas music can be played with the float entry.
