On January 1, 2018, Honda will lead the 129th Rose Parade presented by Honda with its float entry, "Power of Dreams Express." The float brings together Honda's philanthropic partner organizations and volunteers to highlight this year's parade theme, "Making a Difference."
Crafted from enchanted musical instruments reimagined as a three-car train, the float is a whimsical representation of Honda's commitment to engineer good in the community. The Power of Dreams Express float will feature four Honda philanthropy partners—Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), National Youth Project Using Minibikes (NYPUM), Nicklaus Children's Hospital, and Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation—all of which focus on nationwide initiatives that address the physical and mental health of young people. Float riders will include representatives from each organization, including KTLA Morning News co-anchor, Frank Buckley, on behalf of JDRF.
