Nancy....some parades allow this, others don't. I personally don't care for the practice myself, nor do I like that. I have encourages those who do not like the practice to talk to the parade coordinators about it, be professional and voice your concerns and the safety reasons as well, behind your reasoning.
Taffy....we won't be in the parade this year, I just don't like them. While our team is pretty calm, they still get antsy waiting upward of 45 minutes to an hour before the parade starts moving, then it is stop and start. I am going to go talk to the director about wagon rides, see where they think it is a good area, the space, and go from there. A good friend of mine gave us her fathers antique brass sleigh bells we use and polish up, she said it really makes her smile when she hears them. So, no photo's as of yet.
