Learn how California State University students from different campuses and majors worked together over a 13-month span to create an award-winning 70th entry in the 2018 Rose Parade Tournament of Roses, an annual affair that attracted millions of worldwide spectators.

Fasten your seatbelts and prepare for takeoff! Cal Poly Universities' 2018 Rose Float Committee is proud to present our 70th entry into the 129th Tournament of Roses Parade, "Dreams Take Flight"! 
The students from the Pomona and San Luis Obispo campuses have been working hard over the summer in preparation for fall. "Dreams Take Flight" features young animals flying through the air in handcrafted cardboard airplanes, following the parade theme of "Making A Difference" through creativity! 

Watch for us in the air, or on Colorado Blvd, on January 1, 2018!

Parade Theme

“The 2018 theme, ‘Making a Difference,’ is a way to honor and celebrate all of the people in our communities, who quietly and without desire for reward or recognition, act in selfless, generous and kind ways to aid or benefit others.” shared Tibbet. “It’s about the human acts of kindness that enrich the lives of others and are the source of inspiration, hope, joy and optimism for all of us.”
