#MatteosDream: Smell the Roses!

Matteo's Dream

We’re excited to start 2014 smelling like roses – literally.

On January 1, people all over the world will tune into watch the 125th Annual Tournament of Rose Parade.

Last year, over 84 million people tuned in to watch the beautiful floral works of art make their way down Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena, Calif., according to the Tournament of Roses website.

Lions Clubs International is proud of the float entry for this year’s parade because it’s the first time a float will represent a service project. Matteo’s Dream, a project from Concord, Calif. was selected as the inspiration for Lions’ float design.

It’s not only a perfect fit for the parade’s theme “Dreams Come True,” but it also shows what we as Lions do every day – make dreams come true in every community.

We hope that every Lion around the world has a chance to see our float, which is currently being decorated with flowers. Click here to see Lions decorating the float.
