LOL, I love stuff like this. They got more people talking about them as a result than they did the year before, I’m sure. What other parade group got a CCN segment devoted to them as they did?

They received this attention, not through some deceptive means, but rather by being open about the situation they found themselves in. It doesn’t get much better than this.
