The Burbank Tournament of Roses Assoc. Celebrates its 75th Anniversary Building Burbank’s Rose Float with a Community Breakfast on Sunday, August 25, 2024

On August 25, 2024 from 8am to noon the Burbank Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Community Breakfast at Burbank Historical Society located at 115 Lomita Street, Burbank, CA 91506. This family-friendly event brings the community together to enjoy breakfast, entertainment, and the history of the Burbank Rose Float over the past 110 years. The BTORA will be featuring a sneak peek of their 2025 float design called “Having A-Lava Fun!” The Burbank Historical Society will be open for tours showcasing the restored 2nd Place Silver Cup trophy awarded to Burbank’s first float “Goddess of Plenty’ in 1914.
