Rent A Parade Float

The price per float is $440.

The float will be delivered as seen in the photograph to the lineup position.

The float will arrive with a driver and vehicle to pull the float through the parade.

A sign to identify the sponsor is placed on both sides of the float. The sign will be neat and easily read from a distance. Basic simple signs show best. We do not reproduce company logos.

Only 3 floats left as of 11/9/17!
