The Winnie the Pooh-themed characters walking in the annual downtown Los Altos Festival of Lights Parade will have their own float this time around. The Piercey family, pictured above with friends, will be walking with the new float, at top and above, which depicts a scene from Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood. The float was designed by Piercey family patriarch, Chuck, an engineer by trade. The entire family worked on the float construction. “It looks just like our professionally done ones,” marveled longtime parade organizer Nancy Schneider. “It is amazing.”
This year’s parade is scheduled 6 p.m. Nov. 25 along Main and State streets. For more information, visit losaltosparade.org.
