Volunteers are Needed

Prior to their debut in the Rose Parade, floats receive their final preparations at Decorating Places. This special event offers a unique opportunity to preview the upcoming parade entries and take a behind-the-scenes look at how floats are made. Experienced professionals and hardworking volunteers apply intricate natural and floral elements to the floats, while thousands of public guests tour the decorating facilities.

Stay tuned for more information on how to get involved.
