These were shot around half an hour before the parade. The traffic signals were removed because the floats are so tall. Isn't it a little bit silly ?

Great collage of photos. Silly indeed if the entire signal, including arm and pole, is removed. They should erect signals that can be rotated in and out of the way.
Happy Silly Tuesday!

Actually, it's very smart that the signals can be pivoted for such an event. Great attention to detail.
