Long Beach's "Queen of the Beaches" float, at the intersection of Colorado Boulevard and Orange Grove. Queen Leona John sits beneath a canopy of jellyfish pulled by three giant seahorses. Attendants to the Queen hold chains of lillies that trail from the float's canopy. Long Beach's float and its Beach maidens took the grand sweepstakes prize for floats.
