Bayer Advanced will be going for its ninth consecutive Rose Parade trophy with its Garden of Oz float during the January 1, 2009, Rose Parade. The theme for the 120th Rose Parade is Hats off to Entertainment. Bayer Advanced and Pasadena-based Phoenix Decorating, the largest Rose Parade float builder, have created a float that salutes one of the most entertaining and popular movies of all time: The Wizard of Oz, which was released in 1939. The American Film Institute considers it one of America’s 10 greatest films. Warner Bros. has launched a 70th anniversary celebration.
