Everyone is invited to make a lantern and march in the parade! There are all kinds of ways to make a butterfly lantern! Take a look at the Lantern Ideas & Inspiration page and think about adding butterflies. You could decorate a globe lantern or a plastic bottle lantern in butterflies. You could make a box lantern with butterfly drawings. String lights in decorated umbrellas is always nice. You can also find light-up butterfly-looking fairy wings to add to your floral galore costume! (Scroll down for costume advice.) You can also ride with Outback Bikes in front of the parade!

Floral galore costume tips!
We are on the hunt for playful spring colors, floral prints, shiny bits, and accessories. It’s going to be cool out, so we can have lots of fun with layers, hats, scarves, and gloves. Before you go shopping, look in all the closets and the attic! Look in your grandma’s closet. Next, head to the thrift store. There’s a Value Village on Metropolitan Ave. not far from Hapeville. Look for combination you wouldn't normally wear together. Guys, shop in the ladies department! The men’s section is boring. Don’t forget to swing by housewares for oddities and flowers. You could tack felt flowers to anything!
