Float Preparations for the 2015 Rose Parade
On Saturday morning I headed out to Fiesta Parade Floats in Irwindale to photograph the construction of the floats that Fiesta is constructing for the 2015 Tournament of Roses Parade; specifically, the City of Torrance entry.
The theme of this year's Rose Parade is "Inspiring Stories" with the Grand Marshal being Torrance hometown hero, Louis Zamperini. The Torrance entry is called "A Race Well Run" and will feature black-and-white photos of Zamperini's life and the Olympic torch. Those riding the float will be wearing USC caps, honoring the longtime hero who seemed to always be wearing his.
I will be returning a couple more times before January 1, 2015 so you can watch the progress of the construction.
As there is a limit of 10 photos on iReport, please visit my Facebook page to find a gallery of all the floats currently under construction at Fiesta Floats at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10154904280360317.1073741886.390164330316&type=3
