Rose Parade 2020: Hope, History, Diversity and a Welcome Return to Normal
Whittier Daily News –The Downey Rose Float Association took home the top award among the floats built by volunteers. Featuring a floral garden, a small pagoda and a bridge running over a river of blue roses, the float’s defining elements were large origami cranes. Downey volunteers spent weeks folding 10,000 small paper cranes ahead of the event. They were ultimately distributed to nonprofits, according to a news release from the float’s sponsor, PIH Health.
