PASADENA | Dodo Bird Flight School



Back in May we discussed the milestone management necessary to get an all-volunteer float into the Tournament of Roses Parade.  December 19, 2019 gives us a chance to review the December and January milestones in person.

Join us for a summary of the remaining steps along with the challenges they present for getting “Dodo Bird Flight School” onto the parade route on January 1, 2020.
