I recently moved to Downey a few months ago. The other day I went to city hall to get dog tags for my pugs. And to my surprise I saw this postcard at the cashiers window. I asked her why they had this sweet pic. She began to tell me that they are selling these postcards of the conceptual painting to raise money for the float for this years Rose Parade .75 cents each, they also have a collectors pin for $6. Anyway I was stoked because the concept looks pretty old school to me. Anyway, she also gave me the phone number if I wanted to decorate it. I think I just might.....Check out my pics.

I have visited Tahitian Villge a few times in the 80's. Once in the bar to watch a Mike Tyson fight, I saw a few bands in the upstairs banquit area, and even scored some drugs there in early 90's. It was all tore up, but it was still a very cool looking place for the shadey place it was. I wish I was there in its heyday.

This float is one of the few done completely by volunteers, looks like a good project for the local Ohana. And you can buy a $10 raffle ticket for a chance to ride the float in the Rose Parade.

Wow, I didn't think Downey was still liveable. I dug out for greener pastures in '75, but it was certainly loveable back in the day.
S/E LA was once the best. Good luck!

Thanks for the information SW. I went by the City Hall this morning and picked up some cards and a pin. By the way, they also sell the cards for three for $2.00. I hope to donate some time on this float.

That looks like an ambitious float. Any way for us to contribute from afar and possibly get the pin and card?

Won't we all be dead? Per the thread title, it's not for 101 years from now.
