I AM KING KONG: Robby Robbins, The Indy’s Multimedia Sales Manager, is also a Summer Solstice boardmember, and this will be his fifth year taking part in the annual parade. “I am donning a 12-foot puppet,” said Robbins, whose float includes a replica of the Empire State Building and a refreshment-serving water tower. “As King Kong in the ‘Rumble in the Urban Jungle’ ensemble, I am going to once again prove to that dastardly lizard Godzilla that I am truly the king of New York City. The cheering crowd will determine who is champ by the time we reach Alameda Park.”
