A bazillion years ago I was in HS band and we worked on a float for Knots Berry Farm (I don’t recall what linked us to them).
They issued us big buttons with “Why KNott?” with the “N” backwards.
After working all night with no sleep, that N started to look normal and all OTHER “N”s looked backwards for at least a day!
But we did get to see the parade from a pretty good vantage point and it was an interesting experience.
Dang, you must have been a kid at the time. Knotts hasn’t been in the parade since...I don’t want to type it. I do remember fondly the founders Walter and Cordelia Knott riding on a float back in the day. I wonder if that was the one?
