Rose Dedication Garden On Board the 2016 Rose Parade Float is Open

Each year as part of the Donate Life Rose Parade Float, there is an opportunity to honor donors, families, recipients and candidates waiting for transplants by placing a personalized rose on the float in the Rose Dedication Garden. Each dedicated rose is placed in a vial that carries a unique personal message of love, hope and remembrance. Altogether, thousands of roses create a beautiful garden that is a featured design element on the float. 

This year’s float, “Treasure Life’s Journey,” will feature a colorful caravan of sixty floragraphs, portraits made of flowers and natural materials, honoring donors from across the country. Twenty-four float riders continue to share in life’s adventures through the gift of organ donation. Sixteen living donors will walk beside the float, symbolizing the life-sustaining gifts that have been given. And the Rose Dedication Garden will create floral jewels that ornament the base of the float.
