Finishing touches made to Rose Parade Floats
Last year the California Cut Flower Commission (CCFC) reached out to me about certified "California Grown" floats; so I contacted them again. This year, California Polytechnic State University's float will be certified Tuesday afternoon as the only "California Grown" float with more than 85% of the flowers used to decorate the float being sourced from California flower farmers. This is an industry that the CCFC reports, "has a $10.3 billion annual impact on the state’s economy and contributes 92 cents of every dollar earned back into the state’s economy."
I would like to thank the CCFC for the access to the tent where their float was being decorated. The last five photos are from there. I have all of the photos up on GotBaddog.com if you would like to see them.
