Gayle Anderson reports from the Phoenix Decorating Company in Irwindale where preparations for the Rose Parade are underway.

It’s officially the first day of Summer. Folks are planning vacations and Summer travel. However, the folks at the Tournament of Roses are getting a head start at planning the Winter 2023 Rose Parade.

There’s a new theme, a new banner, the list of participating bands is released and now some of the float builders are preparing their first round of float tests.

The parade’s theme will be, “Turning the Corner.”

We take a look at the floats being prepared for testing at the Phoenix Decorating Company.
