Every year, my place of employment has a float in the Winter Carnival Parade. Somehow I got roped into being in charge of creating that float and coordinating the work done on it. The float must somehow reflect the spirit and theme of each Winter Carnival. This year's theme was "Adirondack Cowboys". The float committee that I head up decided to marry those two ideas by creating a bucking bull moose to be ridden by a nominee chosen by the other employees. There was a contest and employees got to nominate people to ride the moose and then they got to vote on the top three nominees. The winner got to ride the moose down Main Street the entire parade. People got really into voting and everyone had a good time.
Here is a picture of the float. I think it is worth 1000 words. Yeehaw!!!
