In a historic first, the Tournament of Roses has accepted our application for a unique combination of a float accompanied by an integrated "marching band of band directors."
The spectacular and colorful animated float, paid for by a portion of every marcher's fees, will lead our historic band in the legendary Rose Parade. The float will be designed and built by an award-winning float-building company.
The band will be composed of up to 300 band directors from across the country and will pay tribute to the exceptional instruction, character development and inspiration provided by music educators everywhere. Our goal is to have marchers representing all 50 states, Canada and Mexico.
