Last minute touches put on Peanut Festival Parade floats today

There will be more than 70 floats in tomorrow's parade and each one of them is handmade.
The staple guns, drills and hammers were out today at the Houston County Farm Center. With the Peanut Festival Parade tomorrow morning, people were making last minute touches on the floats. There will be more than 70 floats in tomorrow's parade and each one of them is handmade. But amidst the glitter and the peanuts, a lot of hard work and care is put into each float. In fact, the crafting has turned into a family tradition.

My granddaughter is Little Miss New Brockton, Madison Meeks, so as a grandparent we're helping over here and getting it ready to enter in to the contest. My wife and my daughter-in-law is here working on it and our neighbors, they've got children in it so everybody in a small town, they pitch in. Everybody comes together and does what has to be done to get things ready," said Wayne Meeks.

The theme for this year's competition is 'Peanut Goes Platinum' to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the festivities. Not only do the floats reflect the theme but they also need to show originality, creativity and showcase the group that's on them.

The parade begins at 9:30 Saturday morning.
