SLIDELL, La. (WGNO)— One Slidell resident is really getting into the Christmas spirit by decorating her golf cart like a Minion, which will be featured in this year’s Christmas Golf Cart Parade.
“We have a Minion Mobile. I’m a mean Minion mama,” Bonnie Vanney said.
“Last year, I did the Mystery Machine and I couldn’t think of anything cuter than doing the Minions this year,” Vanney explained.
She says she decided to decorate her golf cart like Minions because “My son loves them and he’s 50 years old. Not only the kids but a lot of adults like the Minions, too.”
Her golf cart creation is sure to be a parade pleaser, and rightfully so because she worked like a Minion to create her hand-sewn golf cart decorations.
“The most difficult part is making the eyes. Styrofoam cut and rounded out,” she said.
The whole golf cart decoration cover consists of three pieces and she uses Velcro to hold it in place.
The annual golf cart decorating has turned into a competition between Bonnie and Peggy Cromer, the wife of Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer.
“I just tell her, ‘Come on Cromer, bring it on!'” she jokingly said.
“Have a Merry Minion Christmas from a mean Minion Mama,” she said.
Slidell’s Christmas Golf Cart Parade will take place Sunday, December 4th at 5 p.m.
