From a small village celebration started some 75 years ago when members of the Valley Hunt Club decorated their surreys with flowers to celebrate the ripening of the oranges, it has grown into an internationally renowned event. Three and a half million spectators line the Pasadena streets and another 70 million television viewers watch miles of flower-bedecked floats transform the city into a make-believe world of beauty and imagination. Each year there are 50 or 60 floats made entirely of live flowers, mostly from Southern California, although some are shipped in from the Netherlands, Africa and Hawaii. Some depict storybook characters. others suggest the sponsor's hallmark, and some represent abstract ideas. Exotic figures from the Arabian Nights and such fabulous personages as Jack and the Bean Stalk Enchant the children as well as their parents. Giant flower-covered animals bow to the onlookers and mysteriously articulate, "Happy New animals bow to the onlookers and mysteriously articulate, "Happy New Year," while a gardenia-encrusted world revolves slowly above a platform where marigolds spell out PEACE; and the float carrying the Citrus Queen sprays orange-scented perfume along the parade route. Preparation for the New Year's parades and games represents a year-long effort. Themes, floats and entertainment are planned far in advance and teams of professionals spend months creating the floats. The queens and their courts are usually elected from college student bodies, and before they mount their flowery thrones they are presented at gala coronation balls.
