    See 2/3 Size Replica Of LB's 2003 Rose Parade Float Saturday Jan. 18 in MLK Parade & MLK Park

    Uses dry materials, glitter and paper

    Rose parade float Jan 03(January 16, 2003) -- She floated the idea a few months ago...and now a replica of LB's Rose Parade float will float through LB.

    6th district Councilwoman Laura Richardson is inviting LB residents to see a specially built 2/3 size replica of the 2003 Tournament of Roses LB float, "Castles in the Sand," as part of LB's Martin Luther King, Jr. parade and celebration in the 6th district on Saturday, Jan. 18.

    The float measures 33 feet long, 11 feet wide and 12 feet tall and is being built using dry materials, glitter and paper by Phoenix Decorating Company of Pasadena, CA, the same designer and builder of the original float. (Rendering above of the original is from the firm's web site and used with permission.)

    On Saturday, January 18 the float will be in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade (starts 10 a.m. from Anaheim/MLK and heads north to to 20th St.) After the parade, the float will be on display for two hours at MLK Park, 1950 Lemon Ave.

    Councilwoman Richardson, whose 6th district Council office is responsible for the MLK parade, said:

    "Given the unique challenges we are all facing today, I am excited that LB residents will have an opportunity to view what has brought such tremendous joy and inspiration to the millions who learn about LB through the Tournament of Roses Parade."

    In a written release, Councilwoman Richardson's office says no city funds were used for building the float. It says several local sponsors have contributed to making the float and community event memorable, including Colonial Supplemental Insurance, Developers Diversified Realty Corp., LB Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, LB Strategic Marketing Inc., Queen Mary and Union Bank of CA.
