Rose Day Kicks Off 61st Anniversary

Cal Poly Pomona will celebrate Rose Day on Thursday, Dec. 4, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at University Park. The campus community is invited to play carnival games and buy food, merchandise and participate in a drawing. This year’s float, entitled “Seaside Amusement” will also be on display so students, faculty and staff can check on the progress. The 2009 Cal Poly Universities' float is the 61st consecutive entry by students from the Pomona and San Luis Obispo campuses. The float features a fun, lively and whimsical seaside boardwalk scene, fitting the 2009 Rose Parade theme "Hats Off to Entertainment." The float will include a rollercoaster, Ferris wheel, parachute drop, carousel horses and bumper cars. For more information on the event, visit
