Closeups of Rose Parade Floats

(19 photos) Volunteers are scrambling these days to put the finishing touches on the gazillion flowers, seeds, bark, who-knows-what affixed to the floats for Pasadena’s annual Rose Parade on January 1st.

Here I am, 10 years old again… Approaching quietly, secretively, one foot placed directly in front of the next to such an extreme that my balance is momentarily thrown off. I take a quick glance back over my shoulder to the whispered snickers of “them”… those cowards, my pals. No! They’re not my friends. How […]
