A parade float passes by the camera while taking part in the parade celebrating the dedication of the opening of Vermont Avenue and Cabrillo Beach. The float is viewed from a low-angle perspective and at an angle from the side. It appears to move towards the right. Atop the float, four men occupy a rowboat. Two men sit in the middle of the boat and look to the camera. The rightmost man stands towards the boat's bow and holds a flag. The man furthest from camera stands at the back of the boat. He dons a helmet and holds a flag as well. Foliage is draped over the side of the boat and on the float's platform. Three large bobbers sit on the platform alongside the boat. A skirt hanging down from the side of the float reads, "CABRILLO INVITES YOU TO CABRILLO B[EACH] DEPT OF [PLAY...]."
