Brad Kaye, the principal art director for Disney Parks Live Entertainment has been a fan of the Tournament of Roses in Pasadena since his childhood and has even designed two Disneyland Resort floats for the iconic Rose Parade. This year, Disney is pleased to announce that Kaye will be in the judge’s seat as one of three float judges at the 129th Rose Parade on New Year’s Day.
Kaye had the following to say about this amazing honor, “Having watched the Rose Parade growing up, and even going with my family and friends, I always admired the design and art that went into making the floats.” He added, “Then having been fortunate enough to design the Disneyland Resort floats in 2006 and 2013, I really got an understanding of the craftsmanship that the amazing teams of volunteers and scene shops do to pull it all together. Now as a judge, it will be very exciting to see them all up close in the final days of assembly and really be able to applaud all the teams’ efforts.”
Brad has a brilliant history with Disney Parks Live Entertanment where his past accomplishments include designing for parades and spectaculars such as “Under the Sea” at Tokyo DisneySea, “Block Party Bash” at Disney California Adventure, the Halloween parades for both Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland, “Tangled and “Aladdin” shows on Disney Cruise Line and Disney-themed floats in Shanghai Tourism and Festival parades.
You won’t want to miss your chance to see Brad in the judge’s seat along with the amazing floats when the 129th Rose Parade is broadcast live on January 1, 2018 on ABC beginning at 8am PST.
