Joe, Gloria Eggers, her family, and several employees participated in the parade. Her family and Joe drove his 1915 Ford Brass Era Model T, smiling, waving, and honking during the parade for the children. Employees drove the decorated junk trucks with teddy bears hanging all over them. The kids enjoyed the train whistle and the Klaxon hand-push ooga horn.
