<center>Gracie's Thanksgiving Day Parade </center> With Thanksgiving approaching, it is time to start planning ahead for the annual Gracie's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Each year the roomies at Gracie's Garage have decorated floats for the parade. I have always been pleasantly surprised by the creative talents of every roomy. This year's roomy competition is well under way. This is our fourth annual parade. City Wide Competition!!! This year the float decorating contest will extend to anyone in TC3 that wishes to participate! That's right! You can build your own Thanksgiving Day Parade Float on your own lot. Grand Prize for the winning float this year will be 50,000 Simoleans! Parade Theme this year is "Activity" Float size 5 tiles x 5 tiles. 3 full walls and one fenced wall for viewing float. Everything you use to decorate your float must be inside the 5x5 tile area. You will need to be online to show your float sometime between the Nov 18th - 22nd to the judges. You need a sign just outside the perimeter of your float that includes the following. 1. Title of Float 2. Brief description of your interpretation of this year's theme. 3. Designed by (your sim name) Everyone is welcome to stop by Gracie's Garage Sale to view my roomy examples of floats. My roomies are competing with each other and are not part of the city competition. Once you have completed your float, please stop by and add your sim name to our list of floaters. Limit of one float per sim may be entered in contest. Float competition scores Each float will recieve 3 scores from each judge. 0-5 pts for Title 0-5 pts for theme interpretation 0-5 pts for overall creativity A total of 15pts would be a perfect score. At the time of your showing, I will randomly pull 5 people that are online to view your float and give me their scores. Those 5 scores will be averaged together for an overal score in the competion. In the event of a tie, prizes will be divided equally between the winners. Thanskgiving Day Winners will be announced on my property bio and here on Nov 22nd. Parade will begin at 10:00 AM EST. Please join us at the garage to join the parade and view floats. In real life people stand on the street to watch the parade go by. In the sims online, the parade floats are static and sims will parade by them. We will tour as many floats that are online between 10:00AM and Noon on Thanksgiving Day.
