AFTON, Minn. (KMSP) - Love was in the air at the 4th of July parade in Afton, Minnesota, as visitors took advantage of one special new float.
The “Love Float” welcomed 17 couples who either said or renewed their vows, most of them on the float itself.
Licensed wedding officiant JP Armstrong built the float after getting the go-ahead from the City of Afton, and he said things turned out even better than expected.
“We had so many couples,” Armstrong said. “We had to turn away some couples and marry some in the park. We had exactly enough time to get through every couple who I had planned. It just turned out perfect.”
Armstrong said he hopes to bring the “Love Float” to more parades in the future.
