Ride our float!
Apply to be a princess or ambassador

The Sierra Madre Rose Float Association is now accepting applications for Princesses or Ambassadors to represent the Float Association at local functions and activities and to ride on our float on January 2, 2023 in the Rose Parade® presented by Honda.
Princesses or Ambassadors will not only have the honor of riding on the Sierra Madre float, but will also have the pleasure of speaking to the Sierra Madre City Council and most of the local service organizations and clubs. In addition, they will be assisting during our deco week and during publicity opportunities. We will follow current Covid-19 guidelines throughout our float season. Unvaccinated candidates are requested to wear a mask. Princesses/Ambassadors will have a very exciting and educational year!
