The Boy Scouts of America and parades go together like New
Year’s Day and the Rose Bowl. In January, all four unite in a moment you can’t
To celebrate the BSA’s 100th Anniversary, the Orange County, Los Angeles Area, and San Gabriel Valley councils have
joined the National Council to create a one-of-a-kind float for the magnificent
Tournament of Roses Parade.
In just over two weeks, the world will be watching as the
colorful celebration begins in Pasadena, Calif. That’s when most everyone will
see the BSA’s stunning float for the first time. But Cracker Barrel readers get
a sneak peek at this artwork on wheels today.
Thanks to these great photos from Dennis Kuba, an assistant Scoutmaster whose troop is helping build the float, you get a rare behind-the-scenes look at the
unfinished creation. (Follow the jump to see three more great photos.) To see the final product in action, tune in to the big event
on New Year’s Day.
The parade starts at 8 a.m. (PST) Jan. 1, 2010. See it on ABC,
NBC, HGTV, the Travel Channel, or, in Spanish, on Univision.
Pasadena is also where the BSA will launch Adventure Base
100, the traveling Scouting experience that visits more than 40 cities across
the country in 2010. To find out when it’s rolling into your area, click here.
