The Muppets star wasn't the only who had a difficult time maneuvering down East State Street either.

Stroll On State brought thousands of people to Rockford's downtown area this past Saturday.

The organizers of the popular holiday event also brought out a much bigger parade than in previous years.

One thing organizers couldn't account for during the parade were the strong winds making it difficult to keep some of the floats, ahem, afloat.

When the floats were upright one, in particular, had a tough time making it under one of the larger street signs downtown.

Kermit the Frog dying a sad death on East State Street didn't seem to dampen the spirits of those in attendance.

Chrissytrip on Instagram said, "It was a really well-done parade, with a tragic, but memorable ending!"

Missy Piggy wasn't available for comment.
