For the first time in The Rose Parade's 125-year history, a participant's employees in locations across the country are decorating a section of the float. Since everyone could not make it to PasadenaPublic Storage has 5,000 employees in 39 states with over 2,200 locationsa piece of the float was shipped to 33 Regional offices. Each piece represents a letter in an alien alphabet which the employees decorated with yellow straw flowers and then shipped back to Pasadena. When assembled on the mother ship's control board, the letters spell out a secret message that has led three whimsical aliens to arrive in Pasadena on New Year's Day!

The message will be discovered as the float's animation unfolds revealing yet another first for the parade. This still-secret animation has warranted one of only two coveted extended-airtimes in the 2-hour, 5-mile long parade.
