Ah,... nothing like a parade! And
having experienced the Celina parade
the last few years (thanks to the
generosity of my Amphi friends) I
must say it is a very worthy event.
The townsfolk of Celina love our
Amphis - BIG TIME! Everyone waves,
we wave, and then we make a bunch
of waves heading towards the lake,
waves entering the lake, and more
waves from the lake, then there's
that Dave the Wave dude who makes
lots of waves & drinks, and of
course every drink spurs yet more
waves (but don't drink and parade
for safety sake). Waving is key
to being in a parade... practice
your homecoming queen/Hollywood
celebrity parade wave. It's all
in the wrist - and don't forget
to smile as those cameras click.
Now about dressing up an Amphi for
a parade. Marc's steamboat idea
is way cool indeed. This year in
our local parade in Scripps Ranch
we did the Red, White, & Blue theme
(won 1st & 3rd prize I might add).
In years past... hmmm, Oh yeah...
my Mermaid wife dressed as a Mermaid.
And once we even had a giant Dilbert
doll in the backseat. Gotta love a
parade. I seem to remember Amphi
dressed up once too (I'll dig up
that posting and repost it for ya).
Anyway, this year in Celina, Mermaid
and I will be bumming rides and
hopefully can hook up with a parade
bound Amphi. Love those parades,
love to make waves.
See ya in Celina!
THIS IS TO MIKE BAYMAN,
I AM SANDIE THORNTON PARADE CHAIR, AND YOU CAN NOT THROW CANDY FROM YOUR
CAR. IT HAS TO BE PASS OUT AT CURB SIDE. SORRY

Does anyone know if they are going to let us throw candy to the
children during the parade this year. Last year they made someone
walk to give the candy out.
Per the "official" parade information form that came to me, it says
very clearly that no candy is to be thrown from the cars. I think it
has said that in past years, too....and I think they may enforce it
more or less on different years. I don't think that they typically
make a big deal out of it unless it starts to get out of hand.
So...I guess I'm saying, use your own judgement and keep it to a
minimum if at all.
