2025 Float Decoration

Interested in joining us for this year (December 2024)?

Every year, we coordinate thousands of volunteers from Kiwanis clubs, Key Clubs, Circle K, AKTION Clubs, as well as friends from outside the Kiwanis world. In addition to the Kiwanis International float, our team of volunteers will be responsible for decorating up to 13 other floats in the Phoenix Decorating facility and for helping with materials preparation and floral waste cleanup.

We cannot express strongly enough … EVERY TASK IS IMPORTANT. Volunteers are placed according to the needs of the individual crew chiefs at any given time during the scheduled decorating days, so there is no guarantee of working on a particular float or doing a particular task. That being said, our team of site management volunteers will do our best to make sure that everyone who volunteers their time and energy for this project has a memorable and rewarding experience.

When you sign up for a particular shift, we are counting on you being there for the full shift. If you need to arrive late or leave early, it is IMPERATIVE that we know in advance so that you are not placed with a team that is counting on you being there for the full time allocated.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR GROUPS UTILIZING BUS TRANSPORTATION: California law requires professional drivers to take mandatory rest breaks that may impact how early your group must leave. If this affects your group, please contact your group ambassador IMMEDIATELY so that we can plan accordingly with the crew chiefs.

The official signup portal will be available later this summer. For those who are traveling from out of town who want to make travel plans … this year’s schedule will be as follows:
