I don't know how to take night shots with my new camera so I unintentionally used my SUPER AWFUL BLURRY SETTING for the following pics. I apologize...please use a cold compress to sooth your bleeding eyes.
They created an ad-hoc partition tonight to keep curious folks eyes blinded... it fell but they put it back up...thus these AWFUL pics.
It appears they are in the final stages of rehearsal and testing. Floats appeared self powered and music was playing throughout rehearsal. Of note, they had the the underlying light post audio playing throughout the entire parade route, rather than bringing it up from silence as the floats approached a section. Meaning.. I heard the audio running in sunshine plaza for a good 15 minutes before the floats finally came into view. Obviously testing sound systems at this stage also.
