Parade or Grenade?

A couple of my parade pet peeves came up in conversation before Gatlinburg’s 36th Annual Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade. Taz Cable and I were doing an Internet broadcast for SMOMOtv from the rooftop patio of Loco Burro. I pointed out that parade balloons are inflated, not “blown up,” a fact I learned the first time I met Regis Philbin. I also emphasized that parade floats have wheels. Many parade hosts on major broadcast networks mistakenly refer to balloons as floats.
