Lions in the Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year’s Day

Once again, LCI will have a float featured in the annual Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year’s Day.  The theme of  the 2016 Rose Bowl is “Find your Adventure,” which will celebrate the 100 years of the National Park Service.  The theme of our float is “Camps for All Abilities.”

This year, our float will be the 54th unit in the parade, roughly 1/3 of the way through the line-up.  Placement in the parade is determined by a lottery.  The parade is telecast in the US on the three major networks (NBC, ABC, CBS).  Cable station HGTV televises the parade in its entirety and without commercial interruption.

Watch this video above to see how Lions camps around the world are making an impact on young people of all abilities.

    Is the Lions float sponsored by LCI, or a local District/Club? I’ve been trying to research the background and I’m getting nowhere. Also, those green hoodies everyone had on this year are really good looking. Can we buy them somewhere?

      Sponsorship of the Lions Rose Parade Float is a joint collaboration between Lions Clubs International and Lions Float Inc (California Lions). The hoodies were locally sourced in California.
