The Rose Parade is just a few days away - and despite more corporate entries in recent years, there’s still a handful of floats built by community groups. Six, in fact.

In a parking lot underneath the 210 highway overpass, 65 volunteers were at work - some on scaffolding - painting and glueing decorations onto a giant float.
