This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is a photo gallery of floats from past Ocracoke Island July 4th parades. Since publishing that article Al Scarborough showed me this picture of his 1993 float. Maybe some of our readers will remember it.
This "Tax Hog" float was a not-very-subtle statement about Ocracoke Island's high property tax assessments...and the "benefits" received. If I remember correctly the pig was fed wads of money. Out the other end came a talcum powder cloud of gas.
We're anticipating more creative floats this year...whether inspired by local politics, island culture, patriotic themes, or just good fun.
