This is “Crunch Time” for the So Pas Tournament of Roses float team. Judges appear Dec. 30 and 31. The theme of the float is “Three Little Birds,” a Bob Marley song. The overall parade theme is “The Melody of Life.” Here’s the progress on the So Pas self-built float:
1. Flowers are being added. The trumpet on the musical instrument-filled float is done.
2. All dry decoration is done.
3. Big pots of tropical flowers are 50 percent done.
4. Decorating the microphone on the float is completed.
5. Waiting to add flowers to the decks . . . if too warm, must wait perhaps until Dec. 29 or 30.
6. Team starts adding flower petals to the three birds for the “Three Little Birds” float.
