Here are a few snapshots of our team decorating for the 2014 Rose Bowl Parade.
What a delight it was for me to meet Gunya and Berhanu Moges. Both of them will be riding on the LHM float.
There was a walkway on the east side of the building so that you could look at all eleven floats from the “sky.” Quite spectacular!
On the left is a view of the Lutheran Hour float.
While the building is done and the painting underneath the pine branches is done (for determining flower color placement), this side of the float looks rather bland.
Not any more!
Working on the final touches on the back of the float.
While some tired, others were going strong, even with laughs!
Deatil and concentration definitely needed!
LCMS President Matt Harrison will be riding the float.
Even had the privilege of meeting National Cherry Queen at the float.
Another float that we helped decorate.
Two more aerial view of the floats.
We worked from 4 PM to midnight. Great group to work with. The float supervisors were fantastic, always engaging, helpful, knowledgeable.
Farewell from the sky.
An excellent way to spend a day before New Year’s Eve!
[PS Don’t try to push a float with your nose. It’s been tried, and they didn’t even give me style points!]
