The City of Alhambra Seeks Youth to Inspire the Design of the 2020 Rose Parade Float


Alhambra , CA United States

Alhambra, CA — January 25, 2019 — The City of Alhambra and the Alhambra Chamber of Commerce are launching a contest to help design the City’s 2020 Rose Parade float. Each year the Rose Parade unveils a new theme and each float sponsor is expected to come up with a design for their float that works in harmony with the theme of the parade. The theme for the 2020 Rose Parade is “The Power of Hope”, with hope anything is possible.

Having proudly sent the City’s 91 st Rose Parade float down Colorado Boulevard this past January 1 st , it is already time to begin planning for the 2020 parade. With this year’s theme focused on the Power of Hope, the design contest is open to any student who attends elementary school in the City of Alhambra. This contest will run from February 18, 2019, to March 15, 2019. Students attending an Alhambra Unified School District elementary school within the City
of Alhambra will receive their application in their classrooms. Applications can also be picked up at City Hall, Almansor Park, Alhambra Park, Joslyn Center, and the Civic Center Library. The artwork is to be drawn or attached to the back of the application form and the art can be submitted in any medium such as crayons, markers, digital design, or pencil.

The lucky student whose artwork is selected will receive two tickets to the 2020 Rose Parade in Pasadena, where they can proudly watch the City of Alhambra’s float sail down Colorado Boulevard knowing that they inspired the design of that float!
