Northern Motor Inn Royal Hudson Locomotive
REPORTING · 31st July 2011

It was an amazing Float! The Northern Motor Inn really showed what can be done with a little imagination and effort. The moment we saw it, as the line up to start the parade was forming, we decided to feature it on our front page. The smoke, the air horn, the sound track and even an oiler running back and forth ensuring the squeaky wheels got the grease. The Northern Motor Inn deserved this overall "Best Float Award."

The full parade can be watched by following the links contained in this Parade Story. It is interesting how the pictures we selected to feature on this initial parade story were all winners; selected by the Judges as the best floats.

The NMI train float was FANTASTIC! One simply MUST appreciate all the work they put into creating that float which hosted so many features!

'Must'a built alot of commerardary amongst the team members who worked hard together to create that float for the Terrace Riverboat Days Parade.

Good job! Well Done! Best Overall Float Award very well served up and very well deserved.
