US (CA): Tournament of Roses to be decorated with CA Grown flowers

The motorcycles used during the Tournament of Roses parade by the Pasadena Police Department will be joining Cal Poly Universities and FTD as another certified CA Grown parade entry in 2018.


This year’s Cal Poly float is entitled “Dreams Take Flight” and features baby animals flying prop planes amid a whimsical landscape.

Certification requires that over 85 percent of the flowers and foliage used in the parade entries are grown in California.

“Each year these special motorcycles kick off this iconic parade leading the pack of floats, cars, bands and equestrian entries,” says CCFC CEO & Ambassador Kasey Cronquist. “It just seems fitting that those motorcycles, ridden by Pasadena’s finest, be decorated in all-California Grown Flowers.”
