2009 Rose Float

The City of Torrance is pleased to introduce the City's entry for the 2009 Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade. The theme of the Parade is "Hats Off to Entertainment."  The Torrance float will be titled "Mad Hatter's Tea Party."  As you can see, in the link below, the Mad Hatter entertains with a tea party.  His guests are as diverse as the flowers and organic material used on the float.
