Rose Float Decorating, 12/29/11

Stopped by the Rose Float Barn last night and took some pics of the status as of that time, which was about 5:30pm.  You’ll find the gallery below the schedule…  I understand that flower placement begins tonight and will continue over the next couple days.  If you’d like to volunteer, click to view the Volunteer Guidelines.  There’s a link to the release form you’ll need to fill out if you want to volunteer.  The barn hours are: through December 31st :  8:30A.M. to 10:30 P.M., and January 1st : 8:30A.M. to 11A.M.

    Brenda: In the first paragraph of the article above, there’s a link to a document called Volunteer Guidelines. I think it pretty much tells you exactly how to go about becoming one of the workers for the float. Might be a little late for this year, though, since the judging takes place just before noon tomorrow (Sunday) morning. But the guidelines remain, for the most part, the same year after year, so if you download them now, you’ll be ready in plenty of time to help next year. Thank you!

  2. I would very much like to know how I can become one of the workers for the building of the floats. I have watched the parades every since I was a little girl. I absolutely love the parade!

    Thank You!
