Rose Parade to feature Sikh-American float for 1st time

PASADENA, Calif. (KABC) -- For the first time in its 126 year history, the Rose Parade will feature a float dedicated to Sikh-Americans.

With New Year's Day just around the corner, preparations for that float and all the others are well underway. Volunteers with Phoenix Decorating Co. were hard at work Friday at two huge warehouses in Pasadena.

Brian Dancel with Phoenix Decorating Co. said over 2,000 volunteers showed up Friday alone, and even more are expected to come out and roll up their sleeves all the way up to the big day.

Dancel said the United Sikh Mission is very proud to present their float for the first time this year.
