Judging the Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade Floats was not easy. Each has its own special sense of design and unique approach.
Unusual combinations of flowers and colors enhance a display or provide a particular effect. Want a wildflower meadow - it's there. How about an ocean motif - it's there. Drama, whimsey, humor - all done with flowers, seeds, leaves, fronds, and floral material of every kind!
My favorite? Well, there was this little snail - all decorated up using beans!! This one won't eat your lettuce, though. It's a sea snail.
Check out the fabulous floats, plus all the bands and other Rose Festival events, of course.
