This is a great find located just off of Route 81. Coming from Philadelphia it brought back memories of the Thanksgiving Day Parade and the floats. Grandchildren loved it here.

You can see a number of floats that have participated in the Rose Bowl, Thanksgiving Day and Inaugural parades. It will only take a few minutes to walk through if you're in the area.
