Here’s the list of the Rose Parade float award winners for the 2014 parade Wednesday, Jan. 1. Remember to bookmark this article, because as articles and photos are posted about each float, they will be linked here.
There were a lot of first-time entries, and many of them won awards: Singpoli, Stella Rosa, Public Storage, SeaWorld, DigAlert, Wingtip to Wingtip (WASP). Longtime entries Downey Rose Float Association and Lutheran Layman’s League haven’t won in a while, but they took home trophies today.
The big winner for float builders was Fiesta Parade Floats, with nine trophies and the 21st consecutive Sweepstakes prize. Charles Meier of Paradiso Parade Floats not only saw both his entries win, but the float he designed for Sierra Madre also took home a trophy. Phoenix Decorating Company won six awards, and once again, five of the six self-built floats won.
