    Has anyone from Disboards ever won anything at the golf cart parade? Anyone know what the prizes even are?

    I thought the prize was tix to the HDDR, but please don't quote me on it....I am using my brain during the summer and that is a very dangerous thing....;)

    It was 4 tickets.....

    And Jax, if your family is going to dress up like dalmations, I might make an offensive comment.

    well, Mr. M-Sjaxjag, I do hope you were talking to Auburn Jen and Gatordad since we are part of the same float :)

    Gatordad, no Dalmations, I promise. Can't tell what it will be though :banana:party:

    If it is like the year we were there it kicked off very early. I think 9:00? They will close off the main road from the outpost to the settlement. The line up begins at the unhitch areas.

    We never won anything but had lots of fun decorating and participating. We felt like VIPs getting waves and cheers from the crowds that line the road. I believe the others are correct about 4 tix to HDDR.

    They estimated 350 carts last year were up there. A lot of them didn't register, they just joined in. I think the judges are at the 900 loop entrance. Whenever they get to Pioneer Hall the awards are given quickly and it's over. Here's some pics from last year.

    I wanted to give the night parade an honorable mention. We had about 100 carts honking and waving around for about 2 hours. The Po Po stopped us once and said no horns. About an hour later OCSO was called in to "control" the situation a little better lol. Leave it to us campers to ruin a peaceful night at the fort. It was a good time though. only 364 days til the next night parade.

    We had dinner at trails end last night and seen the fire works from the beach.
    Then we stayed to see the Electrical Water Pageant :thumbsup2

    We walked back from trails end to the front to get our truck and wow that's the most golf cart's I have every seen :thumbsup2.

    I seen a bus driver trying to make a turn and was out of the bus trying to stop the carts :rotfl::rotfl:.

    We had a great time at the fort on the 4th and will be back again in aug for my DD birthday.

    And the guy riding the cooler was a blast to see.
