MikeK Looks For Parade Ride

On his Facebook wall, Councilman MikeK posts this SOS: "Looking for a 4th of July Parade entry ride. Ideas? Borrow a golf cart? Unicycle? Donkey? Help?" I've watched many 4th of July Parades in downtown Coeur d'Alene. But I've never been a part of one. My daughter, Amy Dearest, was part of the annual winter parade her junior year in high school when she finished runnerup to Kelly McFarland in the Coeur d'Alene Junior Miss competition that year. Junior was part of the homecoming parades during his days as a Coeur d'Alene Viking football player. But the Family Oliveria is 0-for-the-4th-Parade. Which I prefer because I'd rather watch.

Question: Have you been part of the Coeur d'Alene 4th of July Parade? Describe the entry that you were involved in.
