On the Good Ship Apple Pie

"Display of Steamship "Gold" made of whole and dried apples. The first Sebastopol Apple Show was held in a tent across from the Petaluma & Santa Rosa Depot in August, 1910 and promoted local fruit in various creative ways."

My hometown of Lodi, CA is known (or was) as the locus for growing the Flame Tokay grape. The local festival is known as the Grape Festival and showcases all the varieties grown in the area along with a parade through town. However, AFAIK no one has ever tried to build a parade float exclusively of grapes.
