2014 Glendale Rose Float
Click to see a larger version of the float rendering.
"Let's Be Neighbors" will mark Glendale's 100th entry in the 2014 Rose Parade. In recognition of the fact that Glendale has more than 5,000 acres of natural open space, Glendale's 2014 float, "Let's Be Neighbors" portrays some of the widely seen members of the wild animal community who call Glendale home.
Featured on the float are several of Glendale's noted native inhabitants including the Coyote, California Mule Deer, Red Tailed Hawk, North American Raccoon, Striped Skunk, Western Gray Squirrel, American Goldfinch, and of course the California Black Bear. In this case represented by Glendale's most famous wildlife resident, "Meatball the Bear."
The float suggests that it is not only desirable, but possible for all those who live on the wild land urban interface (the place where urban development meets natural open space) to live together in harmony. "Let's Be Neighbors" reflects the Tournament of Roses parade theme, "Dreams Come True" as the float dreams of the day when all the areas residents-people and wildlife alike can all live and get along together.
