America on Parade-alumni
For some reason, I was thinking, "I bet there are still people out there that were the kids in 1976 that were selected to be in the Bicentennial parade for the summer at Walt Disney World?"
I was one of those kids! We were picked up at our high schools (Maynard Evans and West Orange) by school bus taken to WDW wardrobe; we got dressed in our 8 foot costumes and walked down Main Street on those hot summer afternoons. I was what was called a pole carrier, the yellow and white suited guys pushing the arches on wheels for the dancers. Anybody else out there part of that summer crew?!
