The theme of the 1933 forty-fourth annual Rose Parade was "Fairy Tales in Flowers."
The "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," float has a "National Orange Show" floral sign on the side with a giant orange on wheels as a coach, driven by Mary Jayne Shorett, as Goldilocks, and pulled by the bears, with youths dressed as pages standing at the front of the float. A floral sign at the front of the float reads "San Bernardino." The float is seen at the intersection of Colorade Blvd. and Orange Grove Blvd. The float was sponsored by the San Bernardino Chamber of Commerce.
