VOLUNTEERS INVITED TO DECORATE ROSE PARADE FLOATS; PUBLIC VIEWING
 BEGINS DEC. 26 AT BRAVO PRODUCTIONS IN PASADENA
 PASADENA, Calif., Dec. 20 /PRnewswire/ -- Volunteers are invited by Bravo Productions to participate in the annual volunteer program to decorate the 1992 Rose Parade floats with the flowers and natural vegetation that will be applied by hand to cover every square inch of every float between Dec. 26 and New Year's Day.
 Volunteers are welcome to come out for minimum three-hour shifts starting Dec. 26 through Dec. 30, between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m.; Dec. 30 will be an "all nighter," with crews working throughout the night to prepare for final float judging on the 31st.
 Volunteers should wear many layers of warm old clothes and bring a pair of scissors. They must be over age 14; youths between age 8 to 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
 The Bravo Productions decoration site is in Pasadena, located immediately adjacent to the Rose Bowl, on the south side of the Rose Bowl stadium, at Brookside Pavilion, a large white tent off Seco Street; Bravo Productions is located at the south entrance of the tent. Volunteers should ask for Gregory Jenkins or Thomas Neighbors, co-principals of Bravo Productions.
 Public viewing of Bravo Productions' float decorating also begins Dec. 26. Public viewing times at Brookside Pavilion are:
 -- Dec. 26-27 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
 -- Dec. 28, 29, and 30 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
 -- Dec. 31 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
 Admission to public viewing is $1 per person; children under 8 are free. Brookside Pavilion is accessible for the mobility- impaired.
 "Millions of fresh blossoms will be applied to cover the floats during the week between Christmas and New Year's Day," says Jenkins, principal and co-founder of Bravo Productions, one of the float builders for the Rose Parade. "We welcome volunteers to come out and help."
 "This volunteer program offers youths in particular a special opportunity for both practical experience and fun working on a professional art design project," says Neighbors, Jenkins' partner, company co-founder and art department director.
 "Volunteerism has traditionally been one of the cornerstones of the Rose Parade," says Jenkins. "Last year over 400 volunteers helped decorate the Bravo floats alone. It is our privilege to carry on that tradition."
 Bravo Productions specializes in the creation of world-class floats for the Rose Parade. Its production lot is located in Azusa, Calif., and its decoration facility is in Pasadena.
