"It's nice to thank these customers for selecting U.S. Bank to assist them with their financial needs and reward our employees for great customer service."

The U.S. Bank float salutes the diverse, vibrant and powerful music of the United States.

Each unit showcases a form of music that has shaped America's rich heritage. Float designer Fiesta Parade Floats incorporated a dazzling variety of regionally popular flowers and foliage.
