The Stellabrate Bus on our float represents the journey of life and KC and the Sunshine Band is the perfect sound for celebrating good times.”
KC and the Sunshine Band’s 15-piece band will perform on the Stella Rosa float, accompanied by an energetic troupe of choreographed dancers who represent the diversity of life’s treasured moments. The 55-foot-long float will be adorned in a vibrant and festive array of roses conveying the celebratory nature of the “Stellabrate Good Times” theme.
“We are thrilled and honored that the Rose Bowl Committee and Stella Rosa Wines have invited us to participate in the first ever float celebrating California Wine in the parade's 125 year history.
