2024 Rose Parade Float Builder
South Pasadena Tournament of Roses: The Oldest Self-Built Float in the Rose Parade South Pasadena
More than 30 floats are preparing for the 2024 Rose Parade. Did you know there are six self-built, non-commercial Rose Parade Float organizations, among them the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association, the oldest self-built float organization in the Rose Parade. Volunteers handle everything from building to decorating the float. So, what are they working on? A clue!
That’s right! The 2024 City of South Pasadena Rose Parade Float is named “Boogie Fever” in connection with the 2024 Theme of the Rose Parade, “Celebrating the World of Music: The Universal Language.” The Los Angeles based group The Sylvers 1970’s hit “Boogie Fever” will rock the floats featured animals who will be jamming along with their instruments including a tambourine shaking giraffe. Volunteers are invited to shake their groove-thing and help, and sponsors are invited to donate. Details are on the sptor.org. There’s a raffle ticket fundraiser. Winners get tickets to the Rose Bowl Game, the Rose Parade or three-hundred-dollars cash.
So, let’s make this “a Boogie Fever” Sunday. Gayle Anderson, KTLA 5 News. Where did I put my platform shoes?
