Featured Project of the Month
Parade Floats

The eagle on the float was carved from expanded polystyrene blocks, and shaped with a sawzall. Then it was decorated by George Grom. The eagle was made for a float for the Memorial Day parade that took place in Stratford, CT. Due to the extreme creativeness of this float, George has been nominated to enter The Barnum Festival in Bridgeport, CT on 6/28/09, which is a float competition parade. We are excited to see how the event turned out from this amazing float made from EPS.

Below is another parade float for The Days of ’47 Parade, which is an annual parade presented by The Days of ’47, Inc. The three-hour event is held in Salt Lake City starting at 9:00 a.m. MDT on July 24th, the same day as Pioneer Day, a Utah state holiday. They used giant EPS blocks to carve out this amazing parade float!
