All the floats are vehicles, with no apparent external forces moving them, with brake and accelerator pedals inside, and they seem to be a widespread tradition. Don't have a screenshot atm but watch the episode and you'll see yourself.

It's mentioned that it's an annual festival, they've had these things for years.

it's obvious equestria is somewhere in the very early 20th century

But, it's not implied that the floats have always been motorized.

Still, Ponyville isn't the sort of town to modernise a tradition in a single year (look at how stubborn they are about Winter Wrap Up for example), If they had motorised floats this year they'll have had them for some time.
Furthermore, considering the golden apple one was made by the CMC and had oil going everywhere during its construction, it probably isn't powered by magic of any kind anf therefore doesn't work the same way as F&F's contrapion, meaning this technology came from somewhere else.

Not when Jews are involved. It's ALWAYS about the money then.

I knew they'd add cars in this season.

If it's you Pegasi, I agree with you.
20 min later 6007893 OP
One could make a valid argument that Vinyl's music equipment is powered by her magic in the same manner that the Super Cider Squeezy 6000 was powered by Flim and Flam.
I noticed the tape and the trains. There's a pretty significant difference between a train and what's basically a car. These floats definitely aren't steam powered.
However, I am interested in these radios you mentioned. I don't recall ever seeing one. Can you tell me precisely where we see a radio?
I know, but I and many others still like to maintain an idea of what Equestria is like based of the show, and the creators do try to keep a degree of continuity (moreso in this season if they're to be believed). My rage in the OP was facetious, but I'm still a little miffed.

Also, one thing of note that is not a complaint is that it's mentioned that Manehatten is East of Ponyville. Don't believe we knew that before.
