    The workers at Bond Parade Floats have just two days to make these floats for the honors. At least they’ll get their own honors -- their own NYPD escort to get in position for the parade.

    In total, 12 floats are set to carry the team, coaches and assistants through tons of confetti and shredded paper.

    Until the day of the parade arrives, the work crews at Bond Parade Floats are prepared to work through the night to make sure their majestic masterpieces are ready for Team USA.

    “Through the night, through the morning, till everything is done,” artist Jack Stroinski said.
