Rose Parade / Rose Parade Floats

Public Storage’s first ever float in the Tournament of Roses® offers a playful pun on the company’s stock in trade. Titled, “Adventures in Space,” the design features a trio of fun-loving extraterrestrials steering a gigantic spacecraft through the streets of Pasadena. For the aliens, discovering life on planet Earth is a dream come true. The friendly visitors eagerly introduce themselves to the Earthlings lining the parade route. There’s more than meets the eye to this inventive design. The animated entry has an exciting surprise in store for parade audiences. Stay tuned for the big reveal on New Year’s Day!

A vast array of flowers gives this float its technicolor appearance. 35,000 individually applied lime green button chrysanthemums create the aliens’ glowing green complexions.

Over 50,000 carnations in neon hues decorate the fanciful spacecraft.
