Did you know… The Valley Hunt Club originated the Rose Parade in 1890. Memorabilia of the time show that it was a “Tournament of Roses” — the name being coined by Charles F. Holder and inspired by the flower festival at Nice and pre-Lenten “War of the Roses” in Rome. The Valley Hunt Club has been an annual participant since 1983.

2018 Rose Parade - Sierra Madre

Fun Fact: Sierra Madre is the smallest city to enter a float in the parade. The volunteers comes together to self-build and self-fund the annual float creation. A Rose blossom tree graces the front of the float. A First Aid kit is being used by young boy standing on a parapet to bandage a lady dragon’s paw.
