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, and then spend the week sculpting, painting, gluing and decorating props to dazzle the crowds on this fun national holiday. To top it all off students create costumes to wear while walking alongside the float in the Aspen Fourth of July Parade.
