One of the best memories I have from the parades is the merry clowns. Never mind that the kids always knew who the clowns were; it was still fun to hold out your hands to them in hopes of receiving a marigold flower planted in a butter or milk carton. The sunshine-like cartons usually found their way to the windowsill above Mom's kitchen sink.
I've had so much fun recreating the childhood memory in miniature for others to enjoy as a kit.
