Our Old Settlers Float Takes the Cake

The Library's 2012 Old Settlers float really takes the cake.  Our Float Team chose to celebrate the MPL centennial (1912-2012) at the parade on Sunday (August 5, 2012), which opened the annual Old Settlers picnic & festival at Mooresville's Pioneer Park.  We've got some snappy photos, which you may click to bigify.




Yes, it's a birthday cake.  Those are cupcakes surrounding it.  Probably not made with tuna-in-oil, but, hey, humans would probably like them.


This was before the Old Settlers parade, while the Float Team was putting on the finishing touches in the Library parking lot.

That last photo is not one of the Library's float, but it was pretty cute, so we thought you'd enjoy a peek.

"Flat" Cauli V, or Flat Five for short, was catting the Library booth at the Old Settlers festival, but she hasn't yet filed a report.  The wind kept blowing her off the table, so Scowl-Face said.

P.S.  Whenever I think of parade music, I think of John Philip Sousa.  Whenever I hear "The Liberty Bell," by Sousa, I think of Monty Python's Flying Circus.  But that's just moi.
