The Sapulpa Christmas Parade Float that blew our minds

While the floats were as exciting and full of kiddos as usual, there was one float that caused more excitement than any other—a ship.

If you missed the Christmas Parade last week, it was awesome. It was cold of course, but with energy in the atmosphere and the cacophony of sounds and lights, it was still amazing. Parade-goers began parking their cars and getting their chairs and hot drinks ready at just under an hour to start-time, anticipating the fun that was to come.

There was a long crowd of motorcycles to kick it off, and then a large gap before the next set of floats began arriving, but once they did, the excitement didn’t die down until Santa and Mrs. Claus came by, waving to the crowd from his perch on a Sapulpa Fire Truck.

If you haven’t seen the photos yet, the Chamber provided a great album of all the whole experience.

While the floats were as exciting and full of kiddos as usual, there was one float that caused more excitement than any other—a ship.

Not only was it odd to see what looked like a full-sized ship making it’s way down Dewey Street, but even more amazing was the engineering that was built in to the ship in order to accommodate the stop lights they’d encounter on Main Street, and the power lines on Dewey Avenue. See for yourself in the video below. Genius.
