The theme of the 1935 forty-sixth annual Rose Parade was "Golden Legends."
"River of Destiny" float shows the Colorado River flowing from heather and pompom mountains at the back, through desert and a channel in another mountain to a land of flowers. Two little girls, June Muhleman and Jane Putney, play in the flowers. The float was entered by the Metropolitan Water District. The float is shown heading east on Colorado Blvd. on the first block east of Orange Grove Blvd. at the start of the parade route.
