(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Apple Blossom Parade is right around the corner and organizers have selected this year's theme.

The festival association has announced "Celebrating 90 Years" for the 2014 Apple Blossom Theme.

Executive Director Michelle Wolfe said the idea incorporates the different styles of the Apple Blossom parade from past years and even the future.

"We want to see floats that celebrate the Apple Blossom in all different styles from the past. We will see about posting some photos of classic Apple Blossom floats on our website," she said. "Perhaps some entrants would like to design their floats for the future, say what an Apple Blossom float would look like when we celebrate 150 years? The more creative the better."

Organizers are also pushing participants to go all out with their floats this year.

"We really want to see the number of well-done, creative floats rise," said Ken Rosenauer, Apple Blossom Festival Association president.

The parade is scheduled for the first Saturday in May.
