New York City has the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, LA has the New Year's Day Tournament of Roses. We mentioned back in November that the Pasadena-based event was set to feature a float dedicated to Beverly Hills, and they did just that. While the spendy city's decorated platform didn't showcase any shopping scenes or, as one commenter predicted, "expensive cars" and "cosmetic surgery," the float did pay tribute BH's upcoming centennial celebration by highlighting iconic imagery. Take a peek at the flower-filled creation below and see the rest of the floats here.
