Parade candy is a must at any parade. Itís so much fun to throw candy to the crowd, and the crowd of course will love enjoying your delicious parade candy as they watch the rest of the parade go by. If youíre in a parade and supporting an event, organization, or cause, tossing parade candy to the crowd also helps ensure the crowd gets a good look at your float and the cause youíre representing.
One of the first steps to being a fun parade participant is creating your float. Start with the theme. Popular theme ideas include Mardi Gras, where you can throw beads and parade candy to the crowd; King and Queen type themes where you can toss Gold Coins
out; and movie themes like Willy Wonka and the Wizard of Oz. Once you choose your theme, itís time to start decorating!
Parade floats are usually pretty big, and with a limited budget, it might be a bit intimidating to think youíll have to decorate every square inch of it. A good trick is to buy large rolls of streamers, which are typically very inexpensive, and secure them all around the sides of your float. Then, take a look at our Parade Candy
section. Youíll want to select several different types of candy, choosing enough so you can glue it on to the sides of your float to create instant float decorations, and also enough to toss to the crowd.
Next, visit your local craft store and purchase a few tubes of extra-strong glue. Get your parade committee together and glue pieces of candy to the streamers. Sure, itíll take some time, but the end result will be a fun float decorated with delicious parade candy, and who doesnít love that? Youíll also be tossing parade candy to the parade go-ers cheering for you, ensuring they remember your float and the organization youíre supporting!
