After The Trophies Are Handed Out and The Glory Fades There’s Still Work To Do


Those that know me know that power tools and me are generally not the best of friends.  I am not ashamed to say that Sista Felicia is probably 20 times more skilled with powertools as I am.  That’s a combination of how great she is with them and how god awful I am.

But after the fun and glory of the Horribles Parade award ceremony the part that no one looks forward to is the dismantling of the float. 

Finished and Trailer returned at 9:30PM!

Sweat equity baby!

Thanks Ed, Ron, Felicia, BJ, Barry and Amanda

  • This is when you really find out the true of heart. But it is little known that dismantling can be as much fun, even more than mantling. Lots, Lots less stress!
    The good news is there is so much activity put on by the Fishtown Horribles Parade Committee, Fireworks Committee, etc, that no one wants to miss anything. Bands, Light Show, Fireworks, etc, all while having public safety as first priority! Unless you have served on a parade committee you have no idea how much attention it takes. Congratulations to Ms. Cox, Mr. Williamson, Mr. Tucker, Mr Pett and all involved, including their families.
