Cal Poly Universities Tournament of Roses Float Information, History and Photographs Accessible Online
The 2005 Cal Poly Universities float, “Elefun Time,” marks the 57th consecutive time students from the Pomona and San Luis Obispo campuses will provide an entry in the Tournament of Roses Parade.

Every Jan. 1, those from Cal Poly Pomona and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo observe a long-standing tradition in the Tournament of Roses Parade. Students from the two universities have designed, constructed and decorated entries every year since 1949, earning them the distinction of having the most consecutive entries in the parade's history.

This year's float, “Elefun Time,” incorporates animation to depict a family of elephants enjoying a country joy ride to the song “The Baby Elephant Walk.”

Those at home can see the float on TV. The parade begins at 8 a.m. PST on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2005, and will be broadcast on ABC, NBC, CBS, Univision, HGTV, Telemundo, Travel Channel, Discovery HD and KTLA.
