Cal Poly Universities Rose Float Displayed on Campus

Cal Poly Universities Rose Float Displayed on Campus
The Cal Poly Universities entry in the 2006 Tournament of Roses Parade, “Enchanted Reverie,” is on display on campus.

The campus community is invited to take one last up-close look at the Cal Poly Universities Rose Parade Float, “Enchanted Reverie.” The float will remain on display on Olive Lane, just north of the Old Stables at Cal Poly Pomona, through Thursday night (Jan. 5).

“Enchanted Reverie” rode down Colorado Boulevard in the 2006 Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade on Jan. 2. It marked the 58th consecutive Cal Poly Universities entry into the Rose Parade. The project – involving both the Pomona and San Luis Obispo campuses – is the only float entry designed, constructed, decorated and financed entirely by students.

In addition to the float, Cal Poly Pomona's purebred Arabian horses were featured in this year's parade. W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center Director Bill Hughes and eight students rode the horses, adorned in western, English and traditional Arabian costume. The horses were the 67th entry in the parade lineup while the “Enchanted Reverie” float was 72nd.
