A 60-foot alligator float will represent Louisiana in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser and Macy's announced Tuesday the "Celebration Gator" will promote tourism by featuring jazz, Cajun and Creole cuisine, and a party-like atmosphere. It's expected to cost over a million dollars to build and design.
There's also a three-year commitment for the "Celebration Gator" to take part in the parade.
“In Louisiana, if there’s one thing we know how to do, it is how to parade,” said Louisiana Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser. “Participating in a parade as historic as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a real honor for the people of Louisiana. In celebrating our state’s incredible lineup of music, food, and culture, we hope people from all over the country, and the world, will take part in visiting our lively state where every day is a celebration of life, and we treat you like family.”
