  • TomatoTipper

    These guys don't play around with their floats. I bet they toss full size Snickers into the crowd.

  • RooFeeOOO

    #19 #28 so much better than the Rose Parade

    • Cynic

      Rose parade is a 3rd grader parade after seeing this.

  • mike

    makes the floats in the US look like crap!

    • Silverstone

      Unfortunately, the parades in the U.S. capable of pulling- off desings such as these (like our New Year's Day Parade) are constricted by annual "themes" such as The Wild West, Disney Characters, Under the Sea, Surf;s Up!, Superheroes, The 50's, Treasure Island…stuff that's totally innocuous. I would love to see what designers could come up with if there weren't any idea restrictions!

    • stash

      yeah, it's going to be hard to look at floats again and not be disappointed.

    • Mike re

      You're right man… At least we have the nfl

  • Wet_tosti

    #37 The makers of this Meerkat float are definitely Chivers. Here's why:

    1. Timon from The Lion King is a meerkat.
    2. He and Pumbaa's motto is Hakuna Matata.
    3. Hakuna Matata means No worries in Swahili.
    4. No worries = Keep Calm and Chive On!

    Thus the meerkat float is a Chiver float. KCCO!

    On a side note, how about a Hakuna Matata shirt chive?

    • Ima Gaye

      U know how I know…

    • R-Dub

      This is a terrible idea….

  • Simone

    Well that explains why there are hardly any Dahlia's for sale in the stores in The Netherlands :-P

    • Ralph Den Ridder

      Zundert grows their own Dahlias, in fact, Almost every parade in Holland and Belgium uses flowers from Zundert. The town is surrounded by dahliafields. instead of tullips we got our own fields, for a twist on the general view of the netherlands. millions of dahlias are used.

  • GHT

    Er… the town is called Zundert

  • Niels

    I'm somewhere in the background in some of those pictures, in the audience. It's beautiful to watch in real life. Also, the town is called Zundert.

    • Silverstone
