Where Parade Floats Go to Retire

The party’s over, the parade’s done. But what happens to parade floats after the parade? Some of them end up at American Celebration on Parade, a unique museum in Quicksburg, Virginia. It features a collection of some of the most iconic parade floats in U.S. history, including an eagle that’s more than 29 feet tall, a 30-foot-long limousine, massive polar bears, and an epic American flag float that was created for President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration.
