Skateboarding on a parade float is a moving target

Unusual and unexpected floats can really turn heads in the annual July 4th parade in Peachtree City, and this shredding ode to skateboarding was no exception last week. The entry from PTCSK8 was a half-pipe skateboard ramp on which jumps and tricks were performed as the float moved to the crowd’s delight. The entry won the Grand Marshal’s trophy. See more winning floats on pages C5-C6 in this week's print edition of The Citizen. Photo/John Munford.

Was at the beginning of the parade and saw this dude lose control of his skateboard and shoot it over into the crowd. Not sure who approves floats but they made a mistake in authorizing this one.

Keep your head up!

Been to my share of Carnival's in NO - if you don't keep your head up, you will miss all the culture.
