This float won the Fourth of July parade contest in White Hall, Illinois
WHITE HALL, Ill. (KMOV.com) – The winning float in an Illinois parade is causing controversy for its use of the Confederate flag.
The float, titled “Alsey Mountain Daredevils,” had a sign on the side of it that said, “Havin’ fun in the sun till the whiskeys done.”
In a photo obtained by News 4 from an anonymous source, the float appeared to have a shack-like house with the flag positioned outside. The photo shows three men, one of which was wearing overalls and a Confederate flag bandana, and two women onboard the float.
