Help Us Build a Rose Bowl Float

Overview

Petal Pushers is a group of more than 4,000 volunteers who decorate the Lutheran Hour Float and other floats in the Tournament of Roses Parade on New Years Day.  Each year these volunteers travel to Pasadena from across the nation. They range in age from 13 to 96.  Individuals, church groups, families, senior citizens and Girl Scout Troops are a sample of the groups that participate each year.  Many of the younger volunteers “urban camp” on floors of local Lutheran Churches.

Volunters Needed

It is time for us to make preparations for the 2015 Lutheran Hour Float in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade.  We are now planning schedules for the decoration of the Lutheran Hour Float and seven others that we contract to decorate.  The income we receive from decorating these floats helps to offset the cost of your Lutheran Hour Float.  We need adults and youth groups as well as individuals to participate.  Youth groups need one adult per 5 youths.  Because of insurance reasons, the minimum age is 13.  All of our volunteers must wear a Petal Pushers® sweatshirt from ANY year. The shirts not only provide a fine Christian witness to others, but also enable Petal Pushers® access to the buildings. This year the shirts are blue with the Petal Pushers® logo on the front and have a rendering of the float on the back.

Please mark the Volunteer Sign-up for your group and send it in by December 1, 2014. Please indicate your preference for work dates on the form and return it ASAP.  Work assignments will be made on a first come first serve basis.  The work starts with DETAIL DAYS.  On each Saturday in December, we will prepare materials for the floats and will begin gluing on the seeds and other long lasting materials.  On the Detail Days, youths, age 13 and older, may participate providing that there is one adult per 5 youths. The big push starts on December 26th and runs through to December 31, 2014. Again this year, the Petal Pushers hospitality tent will be hosted by the Lutheran Hour Float Committee.  We will be offering pizza from Pizza Hut and drinks for our Petal Pushers®. This is a unique way to serve the Lord with our Christian witness.

We need your help to make it all work.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to Contact Us.
