Did you know that it takes over 20 million flowers, 5,000 gallons of glue, 600 tons of steel and over 200,000 combined volunteer hours to pull off the Tournament of Roses Parade every year? Or that the parade is viewed by more than 80 million people in the U.S. and is broadcast worldwide to 220 countries? Or that some floats take nearly a year to complete?

This year we will take you behind the scenes where hundreds of volunteers are working to complete the Carnival Cruise Line float to debut this year. This float is a floral replica of the Carnival Panorama which launched this December as part of Carnival’s 2019 West Coast expansion plans.
