Sierra Madre has presented a community created float in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade since 1917. Many local residents volunteer their time designing, building, and decorating the float each year. The Sierra Madre Rose Float Association, established in the 1950s, holds an annual rose sale, a rummage sale, and other fundraising projects to produce a float for the City of Sierra Madre.
According to an article in the Sierra Madre News dated January 3, 1963, "The Rose Parade of 1890" was the title of the 1963 Sierra Madre float. It took top prize in its class. The float was designed by Manuel de la Torre. The theme of the 1963 Tournament of Roses Parade was "Memorable ...Moments.".
