Designing the Apollo Float

The kids are back in school, warmer jackets have been pulled out of the closets, pencils are sharpened and we are bracing for winter, our busiest season. Our summer was an absolute delight. In May our design department expanded into float design. What started as simply tracking down some unique fringe for a client eventually grew into giving a helping hand with a client’s float, then a little design, then another, then another and then another.

We are now excited to say that we can provide everything one may need for their float as well as complimentary consultations.

Recently we were commissioned by Apollo Propane to design, build and install their unique parade float for the Beverly Centennial parade. All props on the float (excluding the mini vehicles) were custom built in house. This was no small task, but we had so much fun with these guys that we would do it 1000 times over. Here are some photos of the design and installation process.
