The Celebrate 150 Spectacular begins with a dozen illuminating floats and culminates into an epic street party at the park’s Celebration Plaza.

I am VERY interested to see how this all comes together. I wonder if the floats will be done by Kern Studios since they did the floats for Grand Carnivale and the WinterFest Wonderland Parade at Carowinds.

This looks very cool! I do find it a little interesting that the renderings don't show Sky Ride or midway ladnscaping in front of the coliseum. I understand that these aren't trypically drawn to scale, but the roller coaster float still looks huge. It almost looks too tall to clear the Sky Ride cars. I'm excited to see how it all plays out.

Why do they call it common sense when it's so infrequently used?

You know that Sky Ride and the landscape beds run down the middle, right?

Interesting for sure, still love the 2021 500 foot coaster poster in the background during the entire broadcast...at least the employees have humor..,.

Skyhawk, if you look closely it appears you will at least get some sailboat floats.

If they take out the Sky Ride and the landscaping beds I am going to get very angry indeed.

The scale of this rendering is horrible. The midways, if they leave the Sky Ride and flower beds (which I agree would be horrible to remove), aren’t nearly wide enough for the scope of those floats as presented with three ramps wide enough for live skaters along with sidelines of spectators.

To under promise and over deliver is a sure recipe for success, vice versa is not so sure fire.

I am hoping this finally gets rid of the leftover Christmas lights adorning the main midway from the old frontier town nighttime display.

It's going to be interesting to see how The French Confection does. I think CP is trying to go a little "Main Street at the Magic Kingdom" but I'm not sure families who come to the park to ride the Raptor and eat as cheap as possible are going to be that interested in authentic, expensive French pastries.

There is nothing inherently more expensive in a beignet than a Krispy Kreme doughnut. However like everything else at CP, they will likely be expensive,

Sweet spot always seemed to do well (we certainly made a stop there every visit), and as Cargo Shorts points out, the margin on this kind of stuff is relatively high.

Beignet batter typically is less sweet than a doughnut but who here wouldn’t be shocked if CP just used funnel cake batter and called it a day?
