Countdown to Parade Day:

The Texas Tornado


The Children of Durham Elementary, lef by Buffy DuPont

About the Entry:

The Texas Tornado is a 1988 Ford Ranger.  The hood & tailgate are painted to look like the Texas Flag.  One side of the vehicle will have colored farm animals on them (hopefully it will look like a pasture).  The opposite side will have Tornado factoids & safety information.  The top of the cab will have green astroturf & a partial farm house.  The bed of the truck will house a large, spinning (I hope) tornado and a smaller non spinning tornado.  The large tornado will have house pieces, plastic animals & maybe a barbie or polly pocket embedded into the sculpture.  All of the items for this vehicle has been repurposed - paint, plastic bags, chicken wire, toys.
