Burbank is set to undertake one of the most elaborate designs ever for the city's entry into the 2011 Tournament of Roses Parade, officials said.
The float design, unveiled this week, will celebrate 100 years since the city's incorporation, and will be called "Centennial Celebration."
"This float is really going to be the leadoff event for the yearlong celebration of our city," said Bob Hutt, the president of the Burbank Tournament of Roses Assn. "We're excited to be setting the tone for the entire year."
Celebrating the people and businesses that have positively affected Burbank, the float features landmarks such as Bob Hope Airport, the Warner Bros. water tower and the Bob's Big Boy character, as well as a film strip lining the edge of the float.
The film strip includes proposed pictures of Bob Hope, Johnny Carson and Walt Disney, as well as the Cartoon Network logo.
"This has been one of the more challenging floats I've been involved in," said Steve Edward, vice president of the association.
