The procession featured Mickey and Minnie in colonial attire riding atop an oversized Constitution float, surrounded by a marching band. There was a float for country bears with a country band, floats based on “American” sights, including a lighthouse, steamboat and a barn, among others. Disney characters appeared in attire themed to their floats, such as Goofy dressed in cowboy gear.
