Behind the Scenes Look at What it Takes to Create the “Most Creative” Horribles Float
GMG was awarded the Horribles Parade “Most Creative” float. Sister Felicia’s design brilliantly combined her passion for cooking, her brother Joey’s GMG community-inspired blog, and the family’s lobster business.
The nine foot tall black enamelwear lobster pot was set upon a cooktop, replete with pot handles and temperature dials. Giant lobsters and lots of baby lobsters were seen in and around the pot and dry ice was used to simulate a steaming lobster pot. Teenage boys were also seen in the pot, supplied with all the Super Soaker ammo needed to squirt the entire parade route of attendees.
What, or who, does it take to create the “Most Creative” Horribles Float? Here’s a behind the scenes look ~
Super-Star Sister Felicia ~ Creative, Talented, Passionate, Devoted to Her Family and Her Community, Unbelievably Amazing Organizer, and Divine Cook are just some of the attributes that best describe Sister Felicia.
Neighbor Deanna and Mammaw working on a Homie costume ~ Always there to lend a hand, too. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree… -and, to add to the fun, Mammaw is especially gifted at telling a good joke.
Ed Collard of House Doctor’s Fame and Craig Kimberly–Ed is Sister Felcia’s “other” right-hand man, especially at float-building time of year.
Not Only Did Felicia Design and Organize the Entire Float Project, she also prepared a fabulous tailgate dinner for all!!! In case you are wondering what Felicia prepared: Warm vats of pulled pork for sandwich making, a variety of cold salads, desserts, and an abundance of refreshments, including Felicia’s very popular Sangria.
