Featuring the longest parade float in parade history from Natural Balance pet food measuring at 119′.
This year, we’ll have a 116-foot long float set in a tropical floral setting. After extensive training, the dogs will actually surf on 65-foot long waves in over 6,600 gallons of water on a float weighing more than 100,000 pounds. A specially designed “wave” machine is incorporated into the design of the float and creates a wave every minute.
