If you didn’t know it already, it takes a village to create a floral masterpiece and South Pasadena produces the oldest self-built float for the Rose Parade.

It takes months and months of planning and execution to pull it all together. With the Rose Parade in 27 days and counting, the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses is asking for your help. SPTOR is looking for materials donations of red liquid amber leaves, brown sycamore leaves and eucalyptus bark.
