The theme of the 1934 Rose Parade was: Tales of the Seven Seas. It rained during the parade that year.
The "Columbia the Gem of the Ocean" float in honor of the visiting football team from Columbia University was entered by the Pasadena Parks and Playgrounds Department. Catherine Wollam, Pasadena City College student, as Miss Columbia, stands at the wheel of the ship. The float won the Pasadena challenge trophy for which only Pasadena entrants competed. The Pasadena Memorial Flagpole (Goodhue Flagpole) is visible behind the float in its original location in the middle of the intersection of Orange Grove and Colorado Boulevard.
