Fort Lupton Girl Scouts Award Winning Float in Trappers Day Parad
The multi-level troop in Fort Lupton planned out their fantastic float for the City’s annual Trappers Day parade that celebrates the City’s pioneer, Lancaster Lupton. The Girl Scouts used chicken wire and tissue paper to create the sides of the float. The base of the float is the Fort Cookie trailer that is used each year during cookie season. We contacted the Girl Scout Museum to obtain vintage uniforms to represent the history of Girl Scouts. The theme of the parade was Pioneers of the Past, Present, and Future. The girls were excited to show off the 110 year birthday of Girl Scouts on the float. Their float was awarded the Mayor’s and Civic award ribbons to proudly display during the parade.
