    I'm reposting this from the LAFF boards. I know last year some of you participated, though this isn't Lucasfilm this year it still may be something fun to do.

    This is to all those crafty folks amoung us. We have been asked to help again with the decorating of the Rose Parade Floats. This time around the company Festival Artists Worldwide has three entries that they need help with LA Dodgers, XXIX Olympics, and China Airlines. I've posted a breakdown of the shifts available and other important information.

    Those volunteers participating in Shift 3 on December 31 may stay for the final
    judging at 8:30am, but we ask that you stay until the judging of all floats is

    We suggest that all our decorators wear old grubby clothes, because this is a
    construction site and there is a lot of paint and glue. You may also want to bring
    a sweater or jacket, as sometimes it can get very cold.

    You are encouraged to bring a sack lunch, but a lunch truck will be available on
    site. There are also fast food restaurants in the area.

    Only people 13 and older are allowed to be on scaffolding. Children ages
    11 -12 may decorate in other areas.

    We do not have lockers or storage to keep sweaters, jackets, purses etc.
    Radios, CDs and cassettes are not permitted. Please use cell phones
    outside the float building, as they interfere with our communication
    Also, as a reminder, there is no smoking inside the float building.

    Festival Artists Worldwide does not accept responsibility for parking,
    security for decorator?s vehicles or personal property. This is the
    decorator?s responsibility. Parking is available on the streets.

    This season, Festival Artists Worldwide will also host a canned food drive to benefit the LA
    Mission. Float volunteers are asked to proved a non-perishable, canned food item each day.
    Outside donations will also be accepted and can be delivered to the Festival Artists Worldwide
    warehouse located at 120 N. Aspan Avenue, Azusa, CA 91702.

    Space is limited and fills up quickly. Please send an email with your name, contact information,
    choice of day(s), shifts and times to You will receive confirmation of
    your registration and further instructions shortly thereafter. We look forward to hearing from you
    and thank you again for your participation!

    Float decorating is really fun, but lots of work.

    I'm thinking about volunteering after Christmas again. :)
