Rose Bowl Parade Floats

If you are like most of us you remember watching the Rose Bowl Parade on New Years Day.  We haven’t been watching over the last several years but this time we find ourselves pretty close by.  While we didn’t brave the crowds to see the parade on the day, we learned the floats are staged for viewing for 2 days after the parade.  We couldn’t resist a visit.

In case you didn’t know the floats in the parade are all decorated by volunteers using all natural ingredients.  Millions of flowers, grasses, seeds, beans. fruit and vegies cover every square inch of every float.  It is quite incredible to see.

    Incredible artistry and originality with the floats! I have a dumb question: you didn’t ship your motorhome over to Hawaii or did you…. or are you getting around by rental car and staying in hotels? Gorgeous pictures of Hawaii!
