Float preparation for the 125th Tournament of Roses Parade
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
I volunteered articles on my blog and took photographs of their fundraisers. Today I went out to Fiesta Parade Floats in Irwindale to take a look at the progress of Torrance's entry to the 125th Tournament of Roses Parade.
As you can see from the photographs, the floats have just about everything except the flowers. The actual decorating of the floats does not begin until December 26 and must be completed by the night of December 30 as voting is done on December 31,
I came out to photograph the decorating last year and I can assure you, come Thursday there will be loads of people of all ages hanging from scaffolding and even laying under the floats. I will go out again in about a week to get another progress update. I already know it will be crowded.
