Our cross had music piping from within as it contain a generator, sound system and mixing board. Along the way, people stood and clapped and you could hear cheering from parade watchers.
I carried the left front beam and walked the route. There were so many moving moments for me along the way. I kept thinking what Jesus did for us as he carried his cross. Needless to say nothing compares to what Jesus did.
Oh yeah, this is such a small consolation in my mind, but we placed first in the open float division.
