Thank you for posting regularly about the Rose Parade floats. I always look forward to watching the parade on tv, and seeing your behind-the-scenes photos make you really appreciate the work it takes to make those floats happen. No strawberry croissants for you from Cream Pan?


You're welcome, Sandy. I am so happy to be able to share activities and meals with everyone via the blog. No strawberry croissants this trip...we're supposed to leave personal things in the car and never know how the weather will be or where we will park...and I so like to savor the strawberries and whipped cream...

Nice trip! It's cool seeing behind the scenes. :-)


Yay! I love the return of Meatball the bear! :) Once again Cathy, an excellent and EPIC post. It's always neat to read and see the "behind the scenes". It's amazing that all of the floats fit into that structure. All of the hard work that goes into this parade is awesome. Thanks for sharing your unique POV.

I spy the hot dog thing from Cream Pan (my daughter's favorite)! :)


Thanks Soo. It's been a fun year seeing the progress.
How nice of you, cc. I've always been fascinated with how things work and the floats are a tradition for so many of us, so sharing some of the steps is my way of sharing a couple of interests. That hot dog thing is so good, as is most everything at Cream Pan (we bought some rolls we thought were raisin bread but they were bread/yeast rolls filled with chocolate chips, which were fresh, but weird)...


Thanks for the Rose post. 10 years living in SoCal and I never checked out the Rose Parade. :-(


The Mister and I have moved so many times in our lives, Bill, that we try to take advantage of whatever is we both grew up in cold climates, watching the Parade on TV with snow outside and having those 'when I grow up' promises to ourselves.


Awesome... I will eventually.
