Parade Awards

This year we took first place in the parade. Our theme was "Dad's Computers: Pretty in Pink Floyd". Pretty in Pink was in honor of the late John Hughes and we merged that with Pink Floyd and Star Wars which are from the official theme. We all dressed as Star Wars characters but changed the costumes to pink. We also made a giant "Jabba the Oz" for the float
This year our theme was "Dad's Computers: The Wrath of Dad" Our float was turned into the Star Trek Enterprise, we all dressed up like Star Trek characters and played the theme to Star Trek for our music. The weather was terrible with wind, snow, hail, rain but we toughed it out.
Since it was 2007 we decided to have our theme be "Dad's Computers: Trivia Royale" Our float had a huge backboard with slot machines and a huge spinning roulette wheel. We also decorated the float with big dice pillars and a poker table and had everyone on the float dressed as a character from a bond movie. We played two versions of the James Bond theme song.
Since Oz sold Mom's computers, our namesake, our team theme was "Dad's Computers: A Farewell to Moms" Our float was a giant Mom's computers building made out of pieces of Styrofoam. We also played ""Nah, Nah, Hey, Hey, Kiss Him Goodbye"
Since the official theme was "Trivia Survivor" our float played the song "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor. We danced around in our alien contest and gave out candy and CDs which contained the alien song video file which is where out float concept came from. Download it at http://www.navone.org
Since the official theme was "All in the Contest" featuring Archie Bunker, our theme was "Dad's Computers: All in The Family Feud" and our feuding families were The Bunkers vs. The Simpsons. We had the theme to "Family Feud" play while we clapped along excitedly like they do in the intro.
The Official theme this year was "Old Days" so we thought of Time Warping back to the old days and did our float as "Dad's Computers: Trivia Time Warp". We dressed up like the cast from The Rocky Horror Pictures show and danced to time warp 11 times during the parade route. Let's Do Time Warp Again!
The Official theme this year was "The Bug Strikes" so we thought of our computers being sick. Our theme was "Dad's Computers: Bug B Gone" and most of dressed up like Doctors caring for our sick computers. Dad and the kids also dressed up like bugs. .
