A large crowd of spectators watches a parade float made of roses, lavender, and chrysanthemums that features a stagecoach with driver and women holding parasols sitting on top. Four horses made of flowers lead the stagecoach and "BURBANK" is spelled out in dark flowers on the side. Atop the float are Leo Burt, Elmer Forsyth, Al Cooper, Pearl Ramgren, Marguerite Harp, and Nancy Hungate.
The United Service Clubs Rose Parade theme float was "Schooldays." It featured a schoolhouse on a hill, with an arbor and a well. Those riding on the float were; Beth MacLeod, 12; Betty Goodman, 12; Phyllis Newcomer, 12; Jeannette Selph, 14; and Jimmy McNary, 7.
An elephant walking along a runway of waves appears before a two-dimensional floral illustration of the Taj Mahal. Princess Betty Mae Allin sits atop the elephant with her "attendants," Helen Jennerich and Bertiel Clark.
