Happy 2014 to everyone. A trophy winner this year, the float by SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment: “Sea of Surprises” – won the President’s Trophy for most effective floral use and presentation.
I did take a photo of the different sections of the float so we could see the flowers up close but decided to display this image of the overall float along with the noticeable police protection surrounding the float. 16 people were arrested at the parade who chose to protest the float and the use of Orcas in the parks and interfere with the parade by throwing themselves in front of the float while in progress.
Fo rmore photos of the Rose Parade please see the theme Tournament of Roses parade.

bella composizione floreale, il parco acquatico lo conosco per la sua fama.
Un ottimo documento per il primo giorno dell'anno.
Felice anno nuovo

Fine combination float image with controversy news.
Looks like you were prepared on Colorado Blvd. sidewalk position?
I planned to see the floats parked the day after the parade, but family illness interrupted my plan.
Hopefully next year...
