Rose parade aftermath


Joan wrote earlier this week about Downey's award-winning entry into the Rose Parade. Today I found the float in the Embassy Suites parking lot.

Each year the Rose Parade Float Association sells flowers off the float to advertise the float and to raise money. I stopped by and spoke with Kelley Roberts, the construction foreman, to learn some stats about the float. It runs on a 350 cubic inch engine to power all the weight of the float.

P1030163The Royal court is available to inform the public about the float.

P1030162This princess has crowned one of her subjects with a long stem rose from the float.
