The theme of this year’s Albany Heritage Day was Albany goes Hollywood.  We here at Melina’s Bistro dove head first into coming up with a float; we also did a skit as we walked in the parade.  It was tons of fun, and very enjoyable to do.  I just hope you thought it was as fun.  Here are some photos of the float in the parade.  I hope you enjoy them.

We had our director, April in the truck so she could have a bird’s eye view of the commercial she was filming.  Her assistant Sam held up the Applause sign every time April said cut.

Our Diva, Monica, wore her most glamorous feather boa in pale pink,

while her assistant, Donna (in the pink hat) did all in her power to attend to her.

Our other Actress Capi (wearing the black dress), was perfectly on queue with each take.

The Sound Boom was run by Anne, while “filming”; Tina was behind the camera.

Dale (right) and Terry (left) were a great help in driving and throwing candy during the parade and also for setting it all up. It was a great float, and the whole parade went well.

We took first place in the parade for float creativity and wish to give thanks to all who helped.

Also here are some more photos from the float…

From Melinawood Productions and Melina’s Bistro, we would like to say thank you to all who helped make this parade season a fun and very enjoyable season.  Thank You!
