Decorating a Rose Parade float is a truly unique experience. The culmination of a year-long process of concept, design, construction, surfacing, and finishing, floral decoration is the final step in the process of making our creative vision come to life. Float decoration happens on Saturdays in December and goes into overdrive beginning December 26 with decorating occurring 15 hours a day through December 31.
