Congratulations to Burbank Tournament of Roses Association
members, John Cappi of Reseda, CA and Ric
Scozzari of Burbank for
submitting and winning the 2006 Design Contest with their entry titled
"Pachyderm Parade". This will be the City of Burbank's
74th entry (71st float) in the 117th annual Pasadena Tournament of Roses
Parade on January 2, 2006.
The parade's theme is "It's Magical". Is
there a more magical time than the circus coming to town? How
about a flying elephant? This little guy takes flight by holding
on tight to his mother's tail. She's trying to hold back father
from devouring all the peanuts from a crashed vendor cart that he has discover
along the road as the circus marches into town!
