I also glean information from people who let me know about anything unusual about the parade. I found out and verified with a festival official that the junior royalty wouldn't be riding in their float - it had blown an engine the day before. So I was told the girls would be riding in the queen's float during the grand parade. I was able to get a photograph of them in the car they rode in as it passed in front of their broken-down float.
