Sun Valley bulb farm flowers to be in Rose Parade

ARCATA - The annual Rose Parade from Pasadena will have local flowers again furnished by Sun Valley Bulb Farm.

Officials say it’s been a tradition at Sun Valley for well over thirteen years. Many dignitary floats have Sun Valley flowers as well as the blooms that adorn Cal Poly’s float. Many graduates of Cal Poly have gone on to be employed by the bulb farm so there is a special connection to the university. Every year it is a little different because every growing season is also different.

This year The Tournament of Roses Parade is celebrates its 126th year.
