    Question float (n.)

    Dear all,

    In Simpsons series season 11 episode 11. Homer was in the kitchen and said:

    "I can't come up with an idea to my homecoming float"

    What is the meaning of "float" here?

    Thanks a lot.

    Usually seen in a parade, a float is a large platform on wheels which carries a display based on a specific theme.
