I grew up in Pasadena, and we used to watch the Rose Parade floats being built — an intricate process. So it was heartening to hear Todd Johnson of Foothill Flowers in Grass Valley has been volunteering to help build floats there for years, as I’ve written before.
“I’m on the tree crew — Beverly Hills, Duarte and Kaiser. Got to go to work now,” said Todd on Facebook after making the pilgrimage to Pasadena. Todd works for Fiesta Parada Floats, which is building 11 floats this year. We visit about his experiences as as a float builder regularly.
A video — “2011 Rose Parade minutes” — is here:
