Gayle Anderson was live in Irwindale at Fiesta Parade Floats to see some of the new participants in this year's Tournament of Roses Parade.
During the 5am and 6am hours, Gayle showed the work performed on the Rose Parade Float being produced for the California Clock Company, manufacturers of the American made Kit-Cat Clock. The company is celebrating its' 80th anniversary. The float entitled, "Timeless Fun for Everyone", will feature skateboarders, who will for the first time skate on and off the float as it moves down Colorado Boulevard!
During the 7am to 9am hours, Gayle showed the work performed on the Rose Parade Float being produced for AIDS Healthcare Foundation, entitled, "Our Champion." As the world commemorates the 30th anniversary of the discovery of the HIV virus, AIDS Healthcare Foundation is celebrating Dame Elizabeth Taylor for her work to raise AIDS awareness.
