On June 24, 1902, Waterville wrapped up its centennial celebration with a parade. Many of the entries in the parade were floats put together by local businesses. One of these was the Clukey & Libby Company float. The Clukey & Libby Company ran a large department store on Main Street.
According to the 1902 Centennial History of Waterville, "Clukey & Libby Co. had for representation, including twenty-four boys in gray dusters with red advertising umbrellas; a float with twelve young ladies in white and rose sunshades, the team being decorated with 500 poppies and drawn by four gray horses with white harnesses."
