St. Patrick’s Day Parade Float Ideas

Luck O’ the Irish, good people, and a wee bit of St. Patrick’s Day party decorations are sure to do the trick when creating a twinkling and magical effect on any Irish parade float, merrily gliding down Main Street in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Onlookers will be green with envy at the oversized, hanging banner, decked out in leprechauns and shamrocks, displaying a proud Irish heritage with a classic bit of humor.

Not to be the center of attraction, Irish parade floats will require more than banners to get the people’s attention. Real people, dressed up in fun Irish themed fan apparel, can toast the crowd with a large assortment of St. Patrick’s Day party favors, tossing candy and spirit beads to all the friendly folks.

Here’s a community group that won first place for building a replica of the local hospital.  The group’s members dressed up in Irish green wearables and costume accessories and they distributed bulk candy to kids.

Gleaming shimmera and metallic decorating fabrics will capture the sparkle of the sun, radiating twinkles and light throughout the marvelous parade.

Dazzled by float members waving custom poms and cheering on the crowd, St. Patrick’s Day Parade attendees are certain to be delighted, because Irish parade float ideas are plentiful indeed.

Your St Patrick’s day float can be simple or elaborate, but your enthusiasm is always the pot of gold!

Parade Float Ideas for End of School Parades

Posted by paradefloats on May 13, 2011

Celebrate the end of the school year with a parade full of floats from different school organizations, clubs, alumni, and staff. There’s something for everyone, so get those creative juices flowing!

Graduation Floats for Seniors
A graduation float seems fitting for the senior class! Load up on graduation party supplies and decorate your hearts out. Tie down tons of graduation balloons so everyone knows how proud you are. String graduation hanging swirls from one side to the other and be sure to grab some confetti to throw out at the crowd.

Athletics Floats
Sports clubs, teams, or cheerleaders may want to decorate their floats using big game decorations. Nothing would be more fun than to ride that float and making a cacophony of noise using noisemakers and waving cheer poms. What would you throw to the crowd? Mini sports balls, of course!

Alumni Floats
Your school’s alumni will have fun on their float that they decorate with reunion party supplies. To achieve that old school effect, hang a reunion banner in the school colors from one side and blast straight into the past with fun retro decorations. Hang a plastic mirror ball from the top and a use double disco ball on the floor. For added fun wear retro wearables when you spread the peace and love by throwing heart shaped peace sign bracelets.
