5 Crowd-Pleasing Floats from the 2020 Rose Parade

Orange County Register – The City of Downey’s 2020 rose float entry featured a Japanese garden with origami cranes flying over the trees. The origami cranes taking flight above the float represented a form of healing and hope rooted in a Japanese legend that if one folded 1,000 origami cranes, one’s wish would come true. Leading up to the parade, the Downey Rose Float Association held crane-making events with the ultimate goal to fold 10,000 origami cranes.

PIH Health volunteers generously contributed to reach this goal, filling baskets with cranes to gift to other non-profit organizations in the Downey community as well as PIH Health patients.
