Dumbo Circus Parade *FLOATS*

Back to the Dumbo Circus Parade 1979

Here's a look at some of the floats being built...

A shot of the Penguin Float...
before it left the warehouse...
Being loaded on the truck, to be taken to Anaheim
All that work to get it on Main Street for all the Guest to see...

Here we are with our "Penguin Trainer"
Sue Gothold!
Adrea Gibbs was our other "Penguin Trainer"
she wore a Blue/Green outfit...
We had a Ball with them!!!
Next to load on the truck,
the float the "Monkeys" will ride on...


Used again in a Christmas Parade
with the Wolf and Pigs...
Then the next year, for the 25th Anniversary Parade
one of the floats got a "Make Over"
for the finally unit...


It was a Fun time...
if you look close at these photos,
you won't see the Characters chained down
to the floats, or holding on to hand rails...
We Danced on and off the floats and did routines!
and we never fell off!
sad to see the Characters now tethered and Chained...

Thanks to my friend Mark for the great pics...

I think you mean 1979, not 1997. I'm just sayin'
