"South Pasadena, whose entries date back to 1893, was the first to honor the centennial, with a float designed by Mike Mera. The entry features the hat popular with suffragettes, a boater in purple and decorated with feathers and flowers and a campaign button. It leans against a ballot box, while the scroll of the 19th Amendment sits in front. A large jewel in the purple and green of the movement represents a secret sign women had for others who supported their rights."

"The goal behind this entry is to promote community spirit and volunteerism. It features Theodore the ostrich jumping off the top of a mountain believing he can fly, all the while receiving encouragement from other ostriches. 150,000 flowers went into the making of this float, including black and grey buffalo grass, pampas grass and corn husks (legs and feet) for the, let’s say, here-to-fore flightless birds, assuming Theodore succeeds. Pine cones and liquid amber pods, collected by the community, decorate the mountain and deck sides."
