The Kiwanis Pasadena Rose Float Club is in charge of our International Float!
The Kiwanis International Rose Parade Float was decorated by volunteers. "Winter Wonderland" was the name of this year's float (seen above in the parade traveling down Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena on January 2, 2012).

The Kiwanis Pasadena Rose Float Club funds the Kiwanis International Rose Parade Float. Throughout the year they raise funds by holding many fundraisers. Our club helped sell tickets for their big opportunity prize which included tickets to the parade, VIP luncheon and tickets to the Rose Bowl Game. This years club president is the highly energetic Larry Madick. Congrats Larry!
