SP 2014: Parade Floats Disclosed

When I woke up this morning I found this offline notice in my email.
"Group Notice From: Second Pride Festival, Karl Kalchek 
This Sunday from 12-2, the creator of this years Second Pride Parade will be available to show potential sponsors the one of a kind floats that are parts of their packages! 
Platinum and  Patron Sponsors have until May 15th to reserve their floats. All Floats are first come first served for sponsorship. 
Floats can also be seen online in the Gallery on the Second Pride website. 
Join us Sunday!"
I of course clicked the link to take a look at was offered. (Below you see the top third, follow the link to see even more of the prefabricated floats.)

I have always held the opinion that a parade and floats are more or less mandatory at a Pride celebration and I am extremely happy that both the parade and the floats are back! And these floats are more FABULOUS than ever!

I am almost certain I must have one of the prefabricated ones, but there is also the option - which I must consider carefully - of having a custom made one.

From the Second Pride website 2014 Festival Packages Side-by-Side, footnote #16: "Subject to availability, 12 - 15 floats are available for sponsorship on a first-come first-served basis. Sponsored Parade floats will include the Sponsor's Logo or graphics. Because there are a limited number of floats, Priority will be given to Platinum and Patron Sponsors until May 15th. After May 15th, Sponsorship will be made available to Gold Level vendors and Sponsors on any remaining floats. Please sign up for your package early!!! A limited number (6) custom built floats will also be custom designed and built for a fee of 15,0000L. Custom Designed Floats are not a part of the sponsor package (Platinum and Patron sponsors may custom design a float for 7500L in lieu of sponsoring an existing float if the have purchased their packages by the June 1st deadline and subject to availability). All custom designed floats must be ordered by June 1st. Deadlines apply. Please see sponsor Cards for additional details."


  1. I think it will be on Saturday morning. But will confirm. The floats will be running 24/7 throughout the festival
