2003 - Bathtime Friends!

The Burbank Tournament of Roses Association is proud to present it's  71st (68th float) entry titled "Bathtime Friends!" in the 114th annual Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade themed "Children's Dreams, Wishes and Imagination" on January 1st, 2003.

To the left is the original concept drawing submitted by Burbank resident, Julianne Buescher.  Click on the drawing to see a bigger version of it.

The float depicts the parade theme of "Children's Dreams, Wishes and Imagination" by having a small boy enjoying some good, clean fun of playing in the bath tub pretending  he is out in the middle of the ocean with his sea creature friends the octopus, dolphins, clams, starfish and a lobster.

The image on the right is the first line drawing, can you spot of differences?  This is part of the process of taking the concept and making it into a float.
