Hi Cathy - I'm not quite sure what "year" of these posts is......but it always amazes me how much work and planning goes into this every year. Like work six months ahead.....


It's a year round business that Pasadena is centered around, Kirk. In January, they clean off the floats (google "Dirty Jobs: Rose Parade Float dismantler" -there was an entire episode) and by January 31, the theme for the next parade is chosen and announced. My first Parade post was about the 2007 Parade (so I've posted on 7 years of floats and started the 8th year) and I included photos from the 2006 Parade in it:


Thanks for the cool before the parade photos!


i love these updates and seeing the progress on the floats! the monster truck float from Alhambra is going to be so cool!

nice to know about the cookies place. dirt cheap prices too!


It's such fun to see the progression, Soo. There will be a road test a month until November then the decorating begins -only the Saturdays in December until Christmas and then daily from the 26th-30th...a great experience.
Thanks, cc. I am curious to see the Trader Joe's float progress, as well as all the others; it's so interesting. House of Cookies is one block from House of Basturma, which is next to Carmela-the other side of town.
