so so beautiful, thanks for sharing an up close view of these floats! happy new year!


The float designs are incredible - It's hard to fathom the amount of work, detail and preparation that go in to making these works of art. Thank you for sharing your "up close and personal" experience very year. I enjoyed watching the parade (and replays) on TV...I had quite a few "favorites" this year, including the Kiwanis float :)


Thanks for the great float photos! It's been awhile since I had liver and onions. Have you had the liver lo mein at Wong's lately?


Thanks, Kat! What a year this will be. Hope the weather gets warmer for you!

It's so good knowing that you got to see and sort of get to understand more of what goes on, cc (that was a fun Road Trip!). It's difficult to document the Parade when not doing it full time. I will add a few more thumbnails and include the Kiwanis.

My pleasure, Soo; It was so good to see you had attended the Showcase of Floats the other year. Actually had the liver and onions at Wongs a week before the fire and didn't put up that post; must return...comfort food is the best!


The floats sure are pretty! Must be nice just looking through your album at home! Seeing one of these parades has got to be a bucket list item for me!


The floats are lined up at the start of the Route by midnight and people can view up close until about 3 a.m.; after that you have to have a ticket for parade seating, where you need to be by 6 a.m., Lynn. People camp out and bring in the New Year on Colorado Boulevard; it's a tradition for so many. I love finding out what people have on their Bucket List!
