We have been a part of the Crewe of Frenzied Relaxation 2 years now.  This year(2004) the float was built at our barn.  The theme of the parade this year was Celebrate St. Louis and the theme our crewe picked was Spirit of St. Louis.

In the Saturday parade I think we were one of the top 10 floats out of 100 this year(my opinion). We at least according the judges were in top 25 since we got chosen to be in the additional Tues night parade which only picks the top 25 out of 100 for the Tues night parade.

Anyway below are photos from Mardi Gras dog parade, Saturday Grand Parade and Building of our float in 2003 for 2004 parade.
