I had the good fortune to attend the Rose Parade in Pasadena this year. It was the 128th parade. Through friends of mine I was able to have a seat in the grandstands about twenty feet away from the floats. We were also given a tour just for the three of us through one of the barns where the floats are assembled. Image 1 shows some of the assembly working progress. Image two shows more of the work and image three shows the float in the parade.
