Burbank on Parade, that all volunteer, action-packed, annual community event, is preparing to roll down West Olive Avenue on Saturday April 6, 2013. However, there is still a lot of work to be done.

Right now, there’s a critical need for volunteers, especially those with the skills to help build the floats. That means painters, carpenters, and artists.

“We need creative people and people who can follow instructions,” Creative Director, Wayne Poirier, said in a news release.“It’s a lot of fun and a chance to use your imagination!”

The theme this year is “Let’s Go to the Movies!”  If you can help out in the float building department or in some other capacity, you’re asked to drop by the Burbank Tournament of Roses Float Barn, under the Olive Avenue bridge., on Saturdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Wednesdays 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Also, volunteers can contact Creative Director, Wayne Poirier, at (818) 402-6399.

For more information on the parade, including sponsorship and participation applications, go to or call the parade hotline (818) 562-7801.
