“The Melody of Life” celebrates music – the universal language.

Music has the power to not only bring us together but take us back to memories and moments as nothing else can. From the sweep of a conductor’s baton to a simply whistled tune, music is woven into the fabric of our lives, community, family, friendship, and love. Music heals us. Defines us. Reminds us, and inspires us to be our greater selves. Rhythm, melody, harmony, and color all come together to create the soundtrack that defines our lives.

Great traditions often start with students, and it was in September of 1949  at Cal Poly Pomona, a student named Don Miller, with $258, entered this university in the 1949 Rose Parade in Pasadena. His actions that day infused the DNA of this place and elevated the image of two universities forever --- Cal Poly Pomona and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Today the Rose Parade is watched by over 87 million viewers, broadcasted into 85 different countries and over 200 territories all over the world. There are 700,000 viewers on the parade route, and thousands of people alone will come through our Brookside PavilionDecoration Tent in the Rose Bowl parking lot in Pasadena to watch us decorate the week before the parade.

Over the years, the Cal Poly Rose Float program has become an institutional icon of the “learn by doing” polytechnic model. Students are continually pushing the float building boundaries with innovative ideas and succeeding, just like Don Miller did back in 1949. The two Cal Poly Universities, Pomona and San Luis Obispo, will continue to work together to build award winning floats for decades to come.
