This float should represent who your family is, what kind of things you like to do, and pictures. We would like your float to be able to move and be paraded around the black top. These will be voted on for most creative, most colorful, most entertaining and overall award. Please RSVP to acaoffice@antiochcharteracademy.org by December 8th to ensure entry.
