always amazed at the float designs!


I've always wondered about Norm's! Love their signage! Their hash browns look so nice and crisp!

Looking forward to seeing the Rose Parade in January. It's always a treat to see the floats in progress...I've missed seeing your updates this past year.


Yes, the designers out-do themselves every year, Kat. Most of the designs were 'accepted' by the Tournament in 2020 before the cancellation of the Parade in June, so keeping within the same Theme has saved some work.

The Googie architecture with the sawtooth pennant signage is so 'familiar' indicating a Classic Diner, it couldn't be missed from the street, cc. The food was well prepared-it is difficult to make 'simple' correctly- and this was great. We really missed driving North just for a few hours to see the road tests as well as stopping for a quick bite for more than 18 months.


That's great they are working on the floats again!


They had started working on/had approved designs last year, Soo. The Parade wasn't canceled until June and usually Road Tests start in late May/early June. It's good they kept the same Theme, President and plans; we'll see how much material price increases affect the bottom line.
