Rose Bowl Parade, Roseville style

Believe in Music float

Roseville's entry...

To kick off its Centennial year the City of Roseville entered a float in the Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena. I went on a bus trip with the City’s Parks & Recreation department led by one of my friends Jamie Carlson. Glad I did. Included in the trip was some quality time to decorate the float. Every inch of the float (including trap doors & handles) were covered with some type of natural material. For example, seaweed was used for the black part of the train on the Roseville float. I got to cut flower petals, put some roses into the base of the float. Fun and sort of relaxing at the same time!
