Parade Trivia Three

Have you been holding your breath since yesterday, citizens? Be blue no longer! The answers to yesterday’s trivia questions are as follows:

4. How many balloons are in the parade? Seventeen (!)

5. What’s the smallest balloon in the parade? Mr. Potato Head. Dude is a mere 25 feet tall and 15 feet wide (seems pretty big to me).

6. How many marching bands are in the parade? Twelve

Is that all you got!, you say? No ma’am. Round Three - here goes:

7. When did the parade first start?

8. What is the biggest number of people the parade has ever drawn?

9. How many volunteers does it take to put the parade together?

Thanks for all these fun posts. I've lived here 25 years and have never been to the T'giving parade yet. This just might be my first year!
