Yesterday was the first day of decorating and I'll start with a short video of my walk through. Just remember that most of the plant material is NOT on the floats, so they will bland. By day 5 (the last day of decorating), they will look great.



Lots more to come...

It think the theme is "dreams Come True".


Yesterday I started at 8AM and didn't get home until 10 PM. I've taken lots of photos, but haven't had time to pose them.

Here are the photos from today. We had the judges come in, so the floats must be finished.







The following photo shows a major flaw that a decorator could make, leaving an area uncovered. This is a costly mistake because you will lose points on this goof-up. The Kaiser Float was amazing and should win, but a goof-up like this could kill their chances:

While it's all over until next year I'm still editing all the videos I shot. The first is of the last day of decorating compressed to 1 minute 40 seconds.
