Help me identify this folk tale (or tales)

Is there a folk tale about a parade that you're not supposed to look at that comes through town every seven years (maybe some kind of hunting party?), and one guy looks at it, so a duck sneaks into his house and puts a fish hook in his leg and doesn't take it out until the parade comes through town seven years later?

Did Mo Rocca really say that?

Watching the parade now on TV and I have a memory of Mo Rocca participating in the TV coverage of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade once in the 90s or 00s. He was talking to some kids on the street along the parade route. He said something to them like "So how about those smallpox blankets, kids?" and then the camera cut away. Wait, really?

Parade costume building.

I want to build a long giant centipede costume for a parade, but am having trouble finding 'how-to' links. I've found lots of parade pictures & sites, but few costume/float building resources. I've gone back & forth between building it segment by segment, to building one long strip that can collapse for storage. I think I've settled on the one long piece. Know of any cheap sources for flexible tent poles sans the tent? Ideas? Links?
