The Terrible 20: Thanksgiving Parade Floats



Thanksgiving Day parades are always wonderful events. You've got wonderful balloons, marching bands, the town's celebrities riding around in cars and, of course, floats. Well, not all floats are good floats as it turns out. We've compiled a list of 10 of the worst floats imaginable and we need your help coming up with 10 more. Leave your terrible float ideas in the comments section or tweet the @TeamCoco with the hashtag #TerribleFloats. We'll pick our 10 favorites and we'll update this list later in the week. Get it? Good. Now get to work!
