2006 - Pachyderm Parade

Congratulations to Burbank Tournament of Roses Association members, John Cappi of Reseda, CA and Ric Scozzari of Burbank for submitting and winning the 2006 Design Contest with their entry titled "Pachyderm Parade".  This will be the City of Burbank's 74th entry (71st float) in the 117th annual Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade on January 2, 2006.
The parade's theme is "It's Magical".  Is there a more magical time than the circus coming to town?  How about a flying elephant?  This little guy takes flight by holding on tight to his mother's tail.  She's trying to hold back father from devouring all the peanuts from a crashed vendor cart that he has discover along the road as the circus marches into town!
