Many decorators of the Torrance Rose Parade float enjoy contributing their time and talents every year to the Torrance Rose Float Association’s annual entry.

NewsBreak LIVE had the pleasure of meeting one volunteer who has devoted her time for the past 26 years.

Dawn Hamilton, a lifelong Torrance resident, has an art degree but doesn’t use it at her current job. For the past 26 years, she has put her artistic skills to use by decorating the Torrance Rose Parade float.

This year, her project was to work on the stunning Allen humming bird so she glued feathers of orange marigold petals and saffron spice with green button poms on the bird’s head.
