THOMAS A. EDISON   Festival of Light Parade Float

pic Blue Genie Art Industries (of Austin TX ) and Robert Toth (RT-DESIGNS USA) joined forces to accomplish the design of the CHICOS Corp. float for the Fort Meyers, FL parade. The pattern for the 8 foot Edison bust was copied from Toth's 9 inch sculptured Edison bust, which is included in his Masters Collection.

The 68th annual Grand Parade is a two-hour extravaganza and the highlight of the festival. The parade includes marching bands, floats, and local leaders. The parade brings the entire community (estimated 200,000+) out in celebration of the life and achievements of our local winter resident, Thomas Edison.
The models Robert Toth supplied.

Toth received a reply from Chico Inc.
Hello Mr. Toth,

Thank you for forwarding this information to us. We were so excited to see the sculpture that you created for us for the Edison Festival of Light Parade. It was a huge hit! We had so many compliments on the float, and mostly your sculpture. We thank you very much for your expertise in working with Blue Genie to create our Edison bust.

We will be using the bust again next year in the parade. We will most likely have a different theme, but Mr. Edison will be riding with us once again!

Thank you again for the information that you sent.
