Rose Parade floats may seem like a costly proposition for a company, with an average price tag of $250,000, but it isn’t a bad deal when divided by the number of viewers. With 700,000 people on the parade route and an estimated 40 million viewers in the United States and another 40 million around the world, the cost works out to less than a penny per view.
