I have probably lost a lot of my readers on this site since I have been kind of slacking; especially when it comes to my annual Christmas coverage. I have been fighting some heavy congestion and going out in the cold night air just did not seem wise. However, there is one tradition I will not slack off on and that is the construction of the float for the 2016 Tournament of Roses Parade sponsored by the City of Torrance and built by award winning float builders, Fiesta Parade Floats in Irwindale.
These photos were taken Wednesday afternoon, December 23. This is pretty much crunch time at Fiesta Parade Floats since the actual placement of seeds and flowers will begin on Saturday. Today as I entered the predominant aroma was that of paint as the builders put on the finishing touches to the float bodies. There was a significant amount of grinding being done as well; these people will be working non-stop to ensure they are ready to begin decorating as soon as Christmas ends.
I will go by at least one more time so you can see the progress. The Torrance float is the one with the red, yellow and white fire truck. I would like to thank Fiesta Parade Floats and The Pollack PR Marketing Group for granting me access so I can show these photos to you.
