The 2011 float is titled “Making Friendships Across the Pacific” commemorating Alhambra’s sister city relationship with the city of Rizhao, China. This partnership is in keeping with this year’s parade theme “Building Dreams, Friendships and Memories.” The float salutes Alhambra’s ties with the city of Rizhao with floral balloons hovering above Alhambra and linking with oriental lanterns shining over Rizhao, China. Rizhao will be the fourth entry from mainland China in the parade’s long 122 year history.

The colorful 50-foot long float is under construction in Pasadena, and volunteers are needed to help decorate it. Volunteering to work on the float is a great opportunity to be part of the team responsible for getting Alhambra’s float ready for the parade while contributing time to a worthwhile community service.

Applications are available at the Alhambra Chamber of Commerce, 104 S. First St. Volunteers must be 14 years and older. For more information, contact the Chamber at 626-282-8481.
