Colonial Hills Elementary School and Worthington Industries, both established in the year 1955, partnered to create an "Ice Cream Float" float for Worthington's Bicentennial Parade which was held on July 5, 2003. Riders and walkers dressed in 1950's attire, danced to period jukebox music and spun hula-hoops. Two large ice cream floats were created using metal garbage cans for the cups, white batting for the ice cream and red balloons for the cherries. The "ice cream parlor" consisted of retro stools, tables and chairs resting on black and white floor tiling.

Those participating in the event were: (Greasers or 50's Boys) Drew Taylor, Alec Scott, Max Richards, Grayson Swingle, Peter Collins, and Jasper Mitchin; (Poodle Skirt or 50's Girls) Elisabeth Zimmerman, Maggie Taylor, Mary Richards, Mary Roth, Becca Long, Mackenzie and Carly Johnson, Hayley and Katherine Cross, Hannah Berridge, Katie Diehl, Ali Diehl, Madison Diehl, and Caroline Smyth; (Fabulous 50's Folks Adults: Jen Richards, Seleen Collins, and Sherri Berridge; and (Float Construction) Gayle Eiselt, Al Smyth, Julia Smyth, Sheila Green, Jen Richards, Seleen Collins, and Peter Collins.
