Lightly poised upon a single branch of acacia, a yellow butterfly emerging from its chrysalis heralded the 1915 Pasadena Tournament of Roses float for the City of Arcadia. The entry was designed by Mrs. Anita Baldwin McClaughry. Formed of yellow roses, marigolds and pom pom chrysanthemums, the butterfly is emerging from a chrysalis of gray-green foliage nine feet in length. This was the first official City of Arcadia entry in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade.
