As the name implies, the Rose Parade features floats that use a variety of roses. However, the different types of flowers and natural materials used to decorate the floats is mind-blowing. The colors are often overwhelming.
It is a rule of the Rose Parade that all surfaces of the float framework must be covered in natural materials (such as flowers, plants, seaweeds, seeds, bark, vegetables, or nuts, for example); furthermore, no artificial flowers or plant material are allowed, nor can the materials be artificially colored.
