Join the team as we design an ultra-imaginative float for Aspen’s Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Parade! Lend your creativity and skills to help win the title of Best Children’s Float. We begin by drafting a master plan complete with an overall theme and oat slogan. Then we spend the week painting, sculpting and decorating a variety of artful pieces to dazzle the crowds on this fun national holiday. We use fabric, wood, paint, glue and more. To top it all off, we tie-dye t-shirts and create costumes to wear while we walk alongside the float on the 4th of July.
