Local residents and visitors will have one more chance to see the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn.’s award-winning Rose Parade float “Tree Frog Night,” when members bring it to La Cañada’s Memorial Park on Saturday.

From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. spectators can see the 30,000-pound float, which stands about 23 feet high and features three musical frogs surrounded by a band of bayou friends, and can even take home handfuls of flowers as keepsakes.

Jeff Helgager, who oversees construction and transportation matters, said if a late afternoon forecast of rain hits La Cañada too early, the viewing will be canceled.

“If the rain starts coming down too much, we will pack up and pull out,” Helgager said.

The self-built float hit Pasadena’s Colorado Boulevard on New Year’s Day, participating in the 130th Rose Parade.

Pasadena Tournament of Roses Assn. judges awarded “Tree Frog Night,” the Tournament’s 41st float entry since the group was founded in 1978, the Founder trophy for the most beautiful float built and decorated by volunteers from a community group or organization.
