The City of Rosemead is looking for a few good floats! Join in the fun and start building your float to be entered in the City of Rosemead’s first-ever Parade Float Contest. This is an ideal way to promote your group, organization, club, church, business, or school. The parade is Thursday, July 4 at 10:00 a.m., in the City of Rosemead.

Plaques will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Winners will also be awarded a ribbon to display on their float. The 1st place winner will be among the first entries in the parade line-up. Floats will be judged on Originality/Creativity, Workmanship, Colors and Material, and General Appearance. Floats will be judged the morning of the parade at 8:00 a.m. in the staging area.

The application and float design are due May 9, 2013.  The application and complete rules can be found on the City of Rosemead’s website,, and our Facebook page.  For more information, call Sandy Bernica at (626) 569-2163.
