Get Ready for the 2025 Decorating Season!

Thank you to everyone who supported last year’s effort, through which our partner Phoenix Decorating achieved 9 award-winning floats, including the Kiwanis International “Serving in Harmony” which received the 2024 Tournament Volunteers Award, recognizing the best use of floral design among floats 35′ and under.

This year, the CNH District Rose Float Committee and the Rose Float Club will once again be assisting in the decoration of floats for the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade on Wednesday, January 1, 2025!

Best Day Ever! Tournament of Roses 2025

The theme of the 2025 Parade is “The Best Day Ever”. The theme of the Kiwanis International float will be “BEE-ing Together” which celebrates the work of all the SLP volunteers and projects throughout the Kiwanis world!

We appreciate all of the tremendous feedback we have received on the changes we made to the registration process this past year, and look forward to creating an amazing experience for everyone who is able to join us for this truly memorable experience. Registration will be available online starting mid-summer. Watch this site and our social media channels for more information.

A very special thank you to the Kiwanis Literacy Club of Southern California Foundation, and its Club President and Foundation Executive Director Douglas Chadwick, for donating our decorating team shirts … and to the Rose Float Club Foundation and Friends of the Rose Float and on-site and other donations which helped pay for the screen printing. These efforts truly helped elevate the Kiwanis brand visibility for all of the visitors to the float decorating site.

THANK YOU to our 2024 Rose Parade Float Decorating Volunteers!

“Serving in Harmony” under construction on 27 December 2023

Thousands of Key Club members, as well as Circle K, Aktion Club, Adult Kiwanians, Friends of the Rose Float, and Friends & Family of our Club turned out this year to help our partner Phoenix Decorating create many of the floats you may see on the New Year’s Day TV broadcast.

Kiwanis 605 was one of the amazing feeding teams that brought their A-game to help our award-winning volunteers!

About the Kiwanis Rose Float Club

Welcome to the official home page of the Kiwanis Rose Float Club of Pasadena! Working as a Single-focus club within the California-Nevada-Hawaii District of Kiwanis International, in coordination with the District Rose Float Committee, we are the group responsible for fundraising a significant portion of the money required to build the KI float. Our members also work with the CNH District Rose Float Committee to arrange the logistics of scheduling and feeding the 5,000+ volunteers responsible for decorating many of the floats that roll down Colorado Blvd during the annual Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California! Our membership includes Kiwanians from across the United States, and all are welcome to join in-person meetings in southern California or remotely via Zoom.

We also organize multiple fundraising efforts to support this operation throughout the year.
