This year Black Diamond participated in the Sellersburg Celebrates! Parade on Saturday, August 27. The theme for the parade was “Picnic at the Park” which immediately made our team first think about sunny days and red checkered blankets, then secondly we realized how perfectly the theme aligned with ants and our pest control services! So first things first, we began constructing giant ants made of styrofoam balls and pipe cleaners (find the tutorial here!)
After spending many weeks using many employees’ hands, (yes, we built that tree and painted those signs by hand!) we are proud to announce that our float received 1st place in the parade’s Business / Commercial category! This was one of the three 1st place trophies that could be earned by the 60 participants.
Black Diamond not only handed out loads of candy to all of the children along the parade route, but we also shot out dozens of our “Get Pest Off” t-shirts using our very popular t-shirt cannon (also built by hand!) We are very proud of our employees that helped build our float to make the parade a success. We would also like to thank all those who showed up early on a Saturday morning to walk with us. We had so much fun supporting a festival near and dear to our Southern Indiana home!
