Digital LA - Rose Parade Float Decorating
Wednesday, December 26, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us to decorate the most digital float we could find at this year's Rose Parade: The Disneyland float with Lightning McQueen and Mater to promote the new Cars Land! It's perfect for us because Lighting is RED (our fave color) and Cars is a digital film!
Be prepared to help out 4 hours within our 5-hour shift - you should be able to be help for most of the 4 hours. Duties include: glue seeds, bark, branches on the float, maybe some flowers.
When u arrive, ask for the Digital LA group or look for Kevin in the red shirt. Dress warmly in flexible layers as the warehouse can be chilly. A sweatshirt would be great. The big parkas from A Christmas Story, not so great, need to be flexible to move around the float.
Remember: The Disneyland float we are decoarting will be at the AES warehouse in Azusa on Dec 26, about 45 minutes east of LA. It doesn't move to Pasadena til probably the next week for final fresh flower application.

More details from Artistic Entertainment Services (AES) which is the company that makes the floats:
Attire: We suggest that all our decorators wear old grubby clothes, because this is a construction site and there is a lot of paint and glue. You may also want to bring a sweater or jacket, as sometimes it can get very cold.
Food: You are encouraged to bring asack lunch, but a lunch truck will be available on site. There are also many fast food restaurants in the area.
Age Limit: Only people 13 and older are allowed to be on scaffolding. Children ages 11 -12 may decorate in other areas.
Scissors: We suggest that you bring a pair of your own scissors.
Valuables: We do not have lockers or storage to keep sweaters, jackets, purses etc. Radios, Ipods, CDs and cassettes are not permitted. Please use cell phones outside the float building, as they interfere with our communication system.
Also, as a reminder, there is no smoking inside the float building.
Parking: AES does not accept responsibility for parking, security for decorator’s vehicles or personal property.
This is the decorator’s responsibility. Parking is available on the streets.
