Thank You Float Sponsors

The Harrison Fest 2016 Parade doesn't just appear out of the air.  The organization of the Parade takes a lot of planning.  Besides Marching Bands, Civic Organizations, Elected Official & Dignitaries, School Groups, Cheerleaders,  the Family of the Year, the Veteran of the Year, etc., you need floats.  What's a Parade without floats.  So, we want to thank the sponsors of our floats, Thomas Banker (Miss United Nations Queens Float), Pharmacy Plus & Surgical Supplies (Harrison Schools Float), Berto Construction (Family of the Year Float), Vermela Harrison & Pearlman & Miranda Attorney/Businesses, Heyer, Gruel & Associates, Party Horizons, Banielle Inc. (Veteran of the Year Float). Kushner Real Estate Group (Reviewing Stand/Main Stage).  Here are some pictures of the floats which took part in the Parade.  Thank you Sponsors for your assistance.
