Auto Club Rose Parade Advisory: ‘Tis the Week after Christmas and All Through the House … We’re Decorating for New Year’s, So No ‘Slow News Day’ Grouse!
Automobile Club of Southern California:
WHO: Approximately 2,000 Auto Club members will be out in force
this week starting Dec. 26 to finish decorating the Auto
Club’s Tournament of Roses float, “Vacation Paradise,” at
Rosemont Pavilion. It’s the first float you’ll see as you
enter the building.
WHAT: The float is a fantastic re-creation of the ideal tropical
getaway spot. Two gigantic scarlet macaws overlook the lush,
exotic locale that features real bamboo-shoot waterfalls
creating a “whitewater river” flanked by lit tiki torches for
two lucky canoe paddlers.
WHEN: Monday, Dec. 26 from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Float decorating
continues daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. through Dec. 31, and on
the morning of Jan. 1 if the float is not finished.
WHERE: Rosemont Pavilion (adjacent to the Rose Bowl), 700 Seco St.,
WHY: The Auto Club sponsors a float in the Tournament of Roses
Parade each year as part of its community service campaign to
raise money for charity. This year, Auto Club offices are
offering plush toy parrot replicas of the organization’s float
in exchange for a donation of $5 or more to Orthopaedic
Hospital. Also, the Auto Club has been conducting a toy drive
in its offices to benefit young patients attending Orthopaedic
Hospital’s annual holiday party.
