Perrone - who discovered the theft Saturday morning - said it takes six men to lift the float, which stands 7 feet tall, 8 feet long and 4 feet across. The $2,000 carriage carries two girls who are declared princesses for the parade day.
Perrone - who believes it was taken as a prank - said his two young nieces are to be the princesses during this year's Oct. 11 parade.
"They were like, 'Who would take a Cinderella carriage?"' Perrone told The Star-Ledger of Newark. "I said, who else but two evil stepsisters?"
