    Wow! What a nice little parade. I'd like to see it. Gotta hand it to Knotts for celebrating the season in such a beautiful way - and for putting some energy into competing with Disney.

    Re: Knotts Spirit of the season parade

    Here you go! I found this Knott's Christmas Parade video on YouTube. The Peanuts characters on the floats are so big and lively! The good looking elf and fairy girls are GOOD LOOKING! Love those short skirts. No wonder the marching toy soldiers were standing up so straight and happy.

    This is one colorful, fun and magical parade.

    Yeah, we spent the day at Knott's today and saw the parade. We've seen it in previous years, and it is still a nice parade.

    They added a Knott's vehicle this year, as well as some cool looking neon green tree's.

    Everyone loves a parade!

    Re: Knotts Spirit of the season parade

    So i have a question. Do these look like antenna's? like as if they were doing the parade disney style? Like when they enter certain sections different audio plays? Or its just so all the audio on all the floats are synced.I dunno, i havent seen it at all so, im just checking it all out ^^

    I can't think of any other purpose for them other than for guidance. You have a sharp eye.

    Re: Knotts Spirit of the season parade

    After seeing that parade numerous times, I'd be willing to bet that there is no sophisticated guidance system for the parade.

    Each float has their own sound system. They move around on their own, with uneven gaps in between them, and in fact one of the main floats was being pushed by CM's!

    Notice that I am not complaining about it, I am just saying for info.

    I would be the last person to complain about something like a float having to be pushed in a parade.

    Of course, there are those that would be running to City Hall to file a complaint about how their "DL experience" has been ruined forever if this happened at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Me, I just enjoy what they have to offer...
