so beautiful!


I enjoy watching Tournament of Roses parade, and one of these days, I'll go. Or at least go to the viewing. But now I really want to volunteer to work on the floats and go eat at one of the places you've posted about over the years!


Thanks for decorating! I watched your handiwork on tv. I love eating at Porto's too.


Cathy, I always love these Tournament of Roses posts and your breakfast choices! Happy New Year


Happy New Year to you and your Mister Cathy! As always, an informative post about the floats. I feel so privileged seeing your "previews" and it is cool to know someone who has helped decorate the floats! I love the potato balls from Porto's!


Yes, so very intricately detailed, Kat. The effect of a multitude of natural materials and colors is highlighted on every float. Sad they can't all win awards.

You live in Southern California, Sandy-enjoy doing the 'local' things! We've met so many who are checking items off of their 'Bucket List 'lately-this can be one for you. It's really not that far away; two hours with one stop (and no traffic).

Thanks, Soo. This year is a little different so far. We had gone to Portos six times in 2019 and were very happy we could sit inside again.

Thanks, Amanda. Decorating and seeing the floats being built/road tests is something The Mister and I enjoy. Our breakfasts up there have been successful all while being random; we really do just drive and stop.

Thanks, and Happy New Year to you, cc. Irwindale is 'local' enough for us to take a mini-vacation for a half day while checking up on the upcoming Parade. Finding a breakfast spot afterwards is another adventure and it's so nice that Portos is just six miles from Phoenix Decorating.
