  • Presented a fun and creative event that involved and engaged bank customers
  • Concept – 10 sections of the parade, one for each year of the bank’s life and based on bank services including:

Savings section - presented large piggy banks on poles

Checking section - featured a mass of kids in sandwich boards fashioned after checks with hats resembling giant ballpoint pens.

Entrepreneur section - offered walking lemonade stands

Money section - included "cent"-i-pedes and "bill"-i-pedes

International section – procession of flags of different countries, all created by parade participants.


  • The parade route ran through the heart of Cherry Creek, an upscale shopping district attracting a great deal of smiles and positive word of mouth for the bank.
  • The route was half a mile long and took 40 minutes to complete.
  • Parade participants ranged in age from two months to 20 years.
  • Two parade marshals, both born on the bank's birthday, led the procession which included walking floats, crazy hats, costumes, banners, flags, and giant twirlable ribbons, all made by the participants.
