with our altruistic service for the improvement of our communities. Not only are

Division or District
Decorate the Float
Kiwanis International Rose Float promotes Kiwanis to approximately 450 million
television viewers worldwide every New Years Day, clearly a significant public
relations tool. Your Kiwanis International Rose Float Committee invites Kiwanians,
clubs, divisions and districts to share in the excitement of the project. |
Opportunities are available to decorate the float
and feed the volunteers. Every club, division or district
in the Kiwanis family can help by becoming a 2011
Kiwanis International Rose Float Sponsor, and by doing
so may actually generate a profit for themselves.
A sponsorship program is available which will
provide a unique banner patch, a commemorative plaque, a quantity of lapel pins,
and tickets for an opportunity drawing, for various levels of contribution. The
drawing prize is 4 of the best seats for the Rose Parade, 4 seats for the Rose
Bowl Game, a VIP luncheon, and reserved parking for the Parade and Game.
28nd Kiwanis International Rose Float will again be
built by Phoenix Decorators, Inc. the builders of
about 20 floats each year for the Pasadena Rose Parade
on New Year's Day. |
The decorating (placing of flowers, seeds, fruits
and vegetables, leaves, etc.) of the float begins
the first December weekend and continues each Saturday.
From December 26th thru 31th, decorating continues
from 8 a.m. until 11 p.m. daily, and 8 a.m. until
noon on January 11st.

California, but we welcome Kiwanis family participation from anywhere in the world.
Past decorators have come from as far as North Carolina and Florida. Contact us
if you would like to participate in the decorating!
The dedicated and
quality service of our Kiwanis Sponsored Organizations in past years, and the
large number of willing and interested volunteers, has resulted in the invitation
from Phoenix Decorators to decorate many additional floats each year.
Float riders generally
