A Gondola in the Rose Parade?
A while back I heard a rumor that the city of Long Beach, California would be entering a float in the Rose Parade, and that there was a gondola incorporated in the float design.
I'm not sure how much it looks like a gondola.
I think adding a ferro would have helped.
Among the many materials used to decorate the float, they used chrysanthemums and split peas.
Apparently there was a gondolier from the operation in Alamitos Bay on the float. I didn't see anything but an arm in a striped shirt.
Kudos to the guy who got to ride the float.
Too bad we only saw his arm.
