Jane Goodall, Grand Marshal of the 2013 Rose Parade

By Julie Hendricks

Plans are in place for Jane Goodall’s transportation through the streets of Pasadena as the grand marshal of the 2013 Tournament of Roses.

Jane will traverse the parade route in a horse drawn carriage from the late 1800s, adorned with chimpanzee topiary in honor of her life’s work. This will be the first time a topiary made of flowers has adorned a transportation vehicle. As the official floral partner of the Tournament of Roses, FTD will decorate Jane’s carriage and the other Rose Parade vehicles that will carry VIPs down Colorado Boulevard, with the help of their creative director J. Keith White.
