Hello HK Leo!

Our third float, HK Leo, has been deployed. 


HK Leo—Fort Zumwalt East High School in Saint Peters, MO

This float was adopted by Fort Zumwalt East High School in Saint Peters, MO. HK is for the 100 Hello Kitty characters in the classroom and Leo is the name of their school mascot, so I decided to draw in a little Leo Hello Kitty!
