From 2018 Kiwanis Rose
Our 38th Kiwanis International Rose Float
will again be built by Phoenix Decorators, Inc. the builders of about 20
floats each year for the Pasadena Rose Parade on New Year's Day.
The decorating (placing of flowers, seeds, fruits and vegetables, leaves,
etc.) of the float begins the first December weekend and continues each
Saturday. From December 26th thru 30 th, decorating continues from 8 a.m.
until 11 p.m. daily, and 8 a.m. until noon on December 31st.
The decorating is skillfully done by Kiwanians, members of Circle K and Key
Clubs, mostly from California, but we welcome Kiwanis family participation
from anywhere in the world. Past decorators have come from as far as North
Carolina and Florida. Contact us if you would like to participate in the
The dedicated and quality service of our Kiwanis Sponsored Organizations in
past years, and the large number of willing and interested volunteers, has
resulted in the invitation from Phoenix Decorators to decorate many
additional floats each year.
Thanks to all the Kiwanians, Circle K'ers, and Key Clubbers
who can out to help feed our Rose Float decorators. Special shout out
to Keith Rickey and Mike Fields for helping with the shopping, set-up and
operation of the event.
