Burbank’s entry in the 1965 Rose Parade, “Fair and Warmer” -- based on that year’s theme of “Headlines in Flowers” -- sits in front of City Hall. The building is still decorated for the holidays with a Christmas tree on the front steps. The January 2, 1965, Los Angeles Times reported that the float was among the winners for California city entrants. Notes on the back of the photo read: “City Hall 1965 Float 1st Prize ‘Fair and Warmer’.” Burbank’s City Hall was designed by architects William Allen and W. George Lutzi in a Streamline Moderne style, a type of Art Deco architecture (also sometimes described as “WPA Moderne”) that became popular in the 1930s and 1940s. Ground was broken on Olive Avenue, across the street from the existing city hall, in 1941 and construction was completed in 1943. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
