Foothill Flowers working on Rose Parade floats for 14th year

From the blog of Sierra FoodWineArt magazine:
Todd Johnson, whose family owns the popular Foothill Flowers florist in downtown Grass Valley, is traveling to Pasadena this week to help build Rose Parade floats for the 14th straight year.

It is an honor and endorsement of the quality of Foothill Flowers’ work. “I’m leaving soon to head down to work with Fiesta Parade Floats,” says Todd. “This is my 14th year. I’m going to be working on Beverly Hills Pet Care Foundation and Sea World floats.”

The 125th Rose Parade, themed “Dreams Come True,” will feature floral floats, spirited marching bands and high-stepping equestrian units along the 5 1/2 mile route down Colorado Boulevard.

Last year Todd worked on three of the floats that won major awards in the Rose Parade.
