Experience the magic of the floats before they make their debut in the 2019 Rose Parade presented by Honda. During the final stages of preparation, a variety of seeds, bark, fruits and vegetables, grasses and of course, flowers are being applied to the floats by experienced professionals as well as hard working volunteers.
