Davey Crockett and Mike Fink Float America On Parade
A nice float celebrating the industriousness of the citizens of America, a keel boat used to transport goods on the Mississippi River. On Yesterland the float is marked for Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher, and the souvenir slide calls it Mississippi flat boat. I think the float encapsulates all three ideas. Note the cast member hanging out on the roof of the Main Street Hotel/Magic Shop.
