Downey Rose Float Association

The Downey Rose Float Association's entry in the Tournament of Roses Parade won the Founders' Trophy for ""most beautiful float built and decorated by volunteers from a community or organization." Downey's float, "The Glass Slipper," was seen by millions of televisions viewers around the world, including 200 countries. The float is stationed at the Embassy Suites parking lot, where residents can view the float up close and purchase flowers to benefit Downey's 2015 parade entry. ********** Published: Jan. 2, 2014 - Volume 12 - Issue 38
