Del Sol Lions join more than 16,000 volunteers in Pasadena to decorate Rose Parade floats

The New Year’s Day Tournament of Roses Parade was viewed by an estimated 400 million people in 85 countries around the world and the Del Sol Lions played an important role ensuring the Lions Club International float was in immaculate condition prior to the roll down Colorado Blvd. More than 20 Del Sol Lions, friends and family headed north to Pasadena on Dec. 29 for a 10-hour day filled with precise placement for colorful flower arrangements.

The Lions Clubs International float theme is “Lions Serving the World,” which honors the wide net Lions cast with community service all over the world and the Rose Parade theme “Oh, the places you’ll go.” Tens of thousands of volunteers descend upon Pasadena and help create the magical experience provided by the Rose Parade. Lions first displayed a float in the 1948 Rose Parade and have had a float in each parade since 1992.

The Del Sol Lions are part of an international network of 1.3 million men and women in 205 countries serving those in need and youth in Del Mar, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, Fairbanks Ranch and Carmel Valley. The club meets the fourth Tuesday of the month from 6 -7:30 p.m. at the newly renovated Fletcher Cove Community Center. Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.
