When asked how she came up with the concept design for the La Cañada Flintridge self-built Rose Parade float, “Panda-monium,” Ella Jacobs, 12, said, “last year when we were talking about float ideas, I kind of just blurted out, ‘panda float’ because I really like pandas.”
Aside from being one of Jacobs’ favorite animals, pandas serve as suitable mascots for the theme of this year’s parade, “Making a Difference,” said La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association President Chuck Terhune. About 50 years ago, he explained, China and 20 other countries started coordinating programs to breed pandas, and they’re finally starting to release some of these pandas into the wild.

For the 23rd year, the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce gave its community the gift of “good family fun, with something for every age,” as Chamber President Pat Anderson described Friday evening’s Festival in Lights event at Memorial Park.
As families arrived to picnic and pose for photos in front of live reindeer, a semi-truck sprayed eight tons of snow on the grass field to the delight of park-goers. Hello Pizza & Chicken and Los Gringos Locos, two local eateries, set up vendor stalls and began serving food and beverages to the crowd.
