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.
