The 1966 Rose Parade - Part 3

We continue with our next installment of the 1966 Rose Parade. The theme: "It's a Small World." The grand marshal: Walt Disney.

The first float is from the City of Alhambra, California and is entitled, "Gator-A-Go-Go." Groooovy!


Next, we have floral butterflies on the front and back of the Chevy/Division of GM float. This one is entitled, "World Of Roses."



Below, is the Occidental Life Insurance Company's float entitled, "Boys Day in Japan." For more information on what Boys Day was (it is now called Children's Day), click here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kodomo_no_hi


The Florist's Transworld Delivery Association's float was called, "Gift to the World."



And the last one for today, is the Bakery and Confectionery Workers Union float with the title, "A Small World of Sugar and Spice."
